Rare Diseases Day: 28 February

February 21, 2018

Rare Disease Day aims to increase awareness about rare diseases and their impact on patients’ lives.

1 in 20 people will live with a rare disease at some point in their life.

Despite this, there is no cure for the majority of rare diseases and many go undiagnosed.

Rare Disease Day improves knowledge amongst the general public of rare diseases while encouraging researchers and decision makers to address the needs of those living with rare diseases.
