Welcome to Graham Hughes International Charity!

I am Professor Graham Hughes, I discovered ‘Hughes Syndrome’ in 1983. Since then my career has been devoted to understanding more about this condition in order to improve patients’ lives. In 2017 I established the Graham Hughes International Charity (GHIC) alongside a group of expert doctors and researchers from around the world. GHIC is built upon 3 key aims:

Firstly, GHIC is dedicated to educating patients, doctors and anyone else affected by Hughes Syndrome. Click here to find out more about Hughes Syndrome.

Secondly, we focus on raising awareness of this rare and often misunderstood disease, particularly on the importance of early diagnosis.

Finally, we contribute to research in the UK and worldwide, to ensure better treatment options and care are available.

None of GHIC’s work is possible without your donations. We receive no government funding and are 100% reliant on your generosity. Any donation, big or small, makes a huge difference and enables us to carry on doing our essential work. If you are affected by Hughes’ Syndrome, know someone who is affected or just wish to advance the management of this life-threatening condition, please consider donating today!

I hope you will get in touch with us – we would love to hear from you.

All the very best,

Professor Graham Hughes
