The GBS/CIDP Foundation International, which was established in 1980, provides emotional support and assistance to people affected by this rare disease of the peripheral nervous system. The foundation currently consists of approximately 18,000 members in 160 chapters. It arranges personal visits to affected individuals in hospitals and rehabilitation centers; fosters research into the cause, treatment, and other aspects of the disorder; and directs affected individuals with long-term disabilities to resources for vocational, financial, and other forms of assistance. The foundation's medical advisory board includes neurologists who are active in Guillain Barré research, physicians in rehabilitation medicine, and physicians who have had Guillain Barré syndrome. The GBS/CIDP Foundation International also supplies informational materials such as a directory, newsletters, and other literature about the disorder, including a comprehensive 55-page booklet entitled "An Overview for the Layperson."
