The blending of computer wizardry and scientific skills has given Europe's doctors a new medical tool to help children suffering from curable diseases who long to enjoy the same healthy freedoms as their friends.

Health-e-Child connects pediatric expertise from across Europe in one common pan-European database. Doctors and other health professionals now have easier and quicker access to the data and expertise of hundreds of centers of medical excellence across Europe. In this way, Health-e-Child helps them combat common and rare sicknesses plaguing Europe's children, such as heart disease, brain tumours or rheumatism.
