CLL Horizons, the international conference of organisations representing people with CLL, is designed to build capacity in patient advocates and grow their skills on medical and advocacy topics. It is a unique opportunity for patient advocates and patient organisation representatives supporting CLL patients to:

  • Learn about the disease, treatments and latest research from leading doctors;
  • Hear from fellow advocates on key topics, including awareness, education and drug access;
  • Meet and network with others doing similar work, giving them the opportunity to discuss issues facing CLL patients.


Attendees gain important knowledge that helps them improve their support of CLL patients in their communities and optimize their advocacy activities.

The 4th CLL Horizons Conference 2021 (CLLHZ 2021) will be held from 5-7 November in a fully virtual format. The conference will be spread over three days running from Friday thru Sunday and will be conducted in English. Some sessions will be duplicated to allow participation of attendees joining from the Southern Hemisphere.

The conference includes topics of importance to the CLL patient community and provides a unique opportunity for participants to share experiences and best practice. We have again been able to attract renowned experts and speakers from different parts of the world, such as Prof Florence Cymbalista from France, Prof Con Tam from Australia or Prof Anna Schuh and Dr. Talha Munir (both from UK). You will find interesting medical and advocacy sessions as well as plenty of interactive panel sessions.

The platform offers an exhibition space for groups to showcase their activities, materials and projects. Attendess will also be given opportunity to submit a poster as well as an abstract on a best practice example around “The impact of the pandemic on Patient Organisations – best practice examples of transforming challenges into opportunities.” Three abstracts will be selected and winners will get the opportunity to present these in our “Hear from the regions” on Day 2.

PLEASE REGISTER HERE to join this 3-days virtual learning & networking experience!

The TOP LINE CONFERENCE AGENDA is now available here! When shaping the agenda, the CLL Horizons planning committee has taken into consideration the feedback gathered from the participants of the previous Horizons conference. The results of CLLAN´s 2021 “Global CLL resource mapping & unmet needs survey” have further helped shape the content for this year´s conference. With that, CLL Horizons 2021 will not just be “another conference” but will be evidencing the real time unmet needs of CLL patient groups and CLL support provision worldwide and thus become an offering that is representative of the needs collected on the ground and the priorities identified in the survey.

Please keep an eye on this website. We will keep you informed and follow up with further details as they become available.

We look forward to seeing you virtually at CLLHZ 2021 in November!
