Survey about achondroplasia
We have designed a questionnaire with the purpose to better know the population connected to achondroplasia.
The questionnaire is optional and anonymous. The data obtained will be used for statistical purposes and to better understand the natural history of achondroplasia. Please consider answering.
If you would like to take the survey later, you can click on the link at the top "Register at BA"
Beyond Achondroplasia has nearly 2 million views from 207 countries. It was started as a blog in April 2013 and it was done by me only, after work and weekends, until 2017. And since then, fantastic people started to support by volunteering and made it possible the creation of this multilingual platform.

The Incredibles that have been collaborating in Beyond Achondroplasia are:

  • Enzo Meireles, Portugal, web designer - August 2016 - developed the web design and platform structure and has been supporting since then
  • Diogo Costa, Portugal - June 2017 to July 2019-  content upload, translation of documents and coordination of the translations with volunteers
  • Maria Cristina Terceros, Bolivia - January 2018 - translation of documents to Spanish
  • Sergey Fominykh, Russia -February 2018 - translation of documents to Russian
  • Eihaku Itooka, Japan - July 2018 - translation of documents to Japanese (still to be open)
