EURORDIS’ Key Principles for Newborn Screening

EURORDIS, Rare Diseases Europe, recently published the position paper Key Principles for Newborn Screening in January 2021. A multi-stakeholder EURORDIS Working Group on Newborn Screening developed the 11 Key Principles, establishing the scope of Newborn Screening, but also the steps that should be taken at the national and European level to make it a success.

The SMA NBS Alliance supports EURORDIS and their call to action to harmonize newborn screening across the European Union and for individual countries to consider these principles in the development and implementation of their Newborn Screening policies.
