The Wilhelm Foundation's goal is for all undiagnosed children to be diagnosed

The Wilhelm Foundation works towards that children and adolescents who have an undiagnosed disease should receive a diagnoses. Doctors expect that there are several thousand different undiagnosed diseases, diseases that have not yet been discovered by medical science.

Some children are born with an undiagnosed disease, other children fall ill at some point during childhood up to adolescence. Undiagnosed diseases are all over the world and the Wilhelm Foundation aims to fight these diseases to save children's lives! The Wilhelm Foundation's goal is for children with an undiagnosed disease to be diagnosed. 

Together we can make a difference, help Wilhelm Foundation save lives!

Many undiagnosed have to wait years to receive an adequate investigation, even though they know that a delayed diagnosis can lead to irreversible injuries and, in the worst case, death.

Individuals whose conditions have eluded medical diagnoses may apply to become UDP (Undiagnosed Diseases Program) participants.

International co-operation is needed to solve the undiagnosed diseases, which is why Wilhelm Foundation participates in various international projects.
