PACIFHAN had its beginnings in September 2014 when, following initial networking, representatives from 6 national Home Artificial Nutrition support groups from Australia/New Zealand, Czech Republic, Italy, Poland, United Kingdom and USA met in Geneva and agreed to work together. Sweden, previously involved in networking, soon joined this effort, followed by France and Denmark.
Following registration in Brussels on 13 April 2019 as an international non-profit association, PACIFHAN continues to grow with its members working together as a trusted international reference on HAN from the patient perspective.
