The challenge of managing non-anterior NIU

Non-anterior NIU is a rare systemic disease,
the etiology of which is not yet fully understood. Consequently, the management of non-anterior NIU can be challenging and often requires immediate referral to a specialist non-anterior NIU center and ongoing interdisciplinary co-management.
To optimize outcomes, treatment should be initiated, monitored and potentially escalated according to the needs of individual patients.

Sharing expert knowledge

REACH is a global educational initiative aiming to improve quality of care of patients with non-anterior NIU.
REACH provides practical training tools and resources for ophthalmologists, rheumatologists and uveitis specialists who treat non-anterior NIU. The REACH program is informed and developed by leading international experts in the management of non-anterior NIU.

REACH Main Objectives and Mission



Accurate and timely referral of patients with suspected non-anterior NIU eligible for
treatment escalation.



Ensuring appropriate treatment escalation –
right patients, right time.



Ongoing collaboration between GO and specialists, event post-biologic treatment.
