HD Youth Services & Programs in the Netherlands

Name of youth service or program

Campagneteam Huntington (CTH)

Region the service or program covers

The Netherlands

Explanation of service/program

Campagneteam Huntington

The CTH started 2 years ago, partly because the younger generations could not exploit their ideas to raise awareness. The Dutch HD youth were very eager to raise awareness in the Netherlands (and now Flanders/Belgium too) for HD, also so enable them to start local actions. We needed a campaign, a slogan! The name ‘Campagneteam Huntington’ was originally a nickname for the team, but became the official name as that is what is was: campaigning for HD! ‘Campagneteam Huntington’ aims to fund fundamental scientific research that should lead to a therapy for Huntington’s disease.
