What is the CML Community Advisory Board

The CML Community Advisory Board (CML-CAB) is a working group of the CML Advocates Network where patient advocates leaders from all world regions, many living with CML, work together to improve outcomes of CML patients covering patient information, research priorities, access to treatment and capacity building in the CML community.



The CML-CAB aims to promote best-in class CML research as well as the harmonisation of good clinical practice, standard of care and access to best available CML therapies and diagnostic tools.



CML-CAB meetings, based on the proven ECAB model implemented by the HIV patient community and EATG for more than a decade, are community-run advisory boards where the patient community decides on the topics of highest relevance and impact for the patient community. Participants of the CML-CAB meetings have the opportunity of a two-way dialogue discussing key topics in CML between key leading advocates of the patient community and external stakeholders, and discussing potential follow-up action.


Composition of the CML-CAB

The CML-CAB is comprised of a chair and a co-chair, a steering committee, and members. The CML-CAB it is coordinated by the two CML-CAB chairs, supported by the facilitator and the Steering Committee.
