In 2013, the International Myeloma Foundation led the development of the Global Myeloma Alliance, which became the Global Myeloma Action Network (GMAN) in 2014. GMAN is a group of myeloma patient organizations around the world whose aim is to support myeloma patients’ needs. While each member organization executes its own mission and vision, GMAN works to convene members and partners to share best practices, address mutual areas of concern and elevate awareness of multiple myeloma.
