Syngap Global Network

Act Locally

Connect Globally

Who are we?

Syngap Global Network is a collaboration between organisations and parents representing the Syngap community in their country.


We have come together to drive the global unification of Syngap1-related efforts and initiatives.

Our Mission

Our mission is to coordinate our efforts globally, in turn creating strong local communities for our families. As a result, Syngap families will feel less isolated, having the resources they need to help their children the best they can.

With growing number of more than 1055 diagnosed patients in the world it is critical that we coordinate our efforts and spread awareness.

Our Goals

Create a strong patient registry

What we are not​

Syngap Global Network is not an organisation or foundation. It is a pure and simple collaboration.

Syngap Global Network will not raise money for Syngap1-related causes, since we are not a legal entity. If you wish to donate please reach out to the main contact in your country.

To find information in your country please visit the International Orgs tab.

International Syngap1 Day

International Syngap1 Awareness day 2021
 
Awareness day is not a single day… it is an everyday task that we will continue until a treatment or a cure is found.
We’ve compiled a video of more than 150 syngap1 kids and adults that participated in 2021 edition and we hope you will take as much pleasure watching it as we took compiling it.
