RARE DISEASE DAY – FEBRUARY 29th
About Rare Disease Day
Rare Disease Day is the international awareness-raising campaign for rare diseases. Since Rare Disease Day started in 2008, thousands of events have taken place throughout the world, reaching millions of people.
The theme for Rare Disease Day 2020 is ‘We Are The 300 Million’. There are over 300 million people worldwide living with a rare disease. Together across borders, and across the 6000+ rare diseases we work towards more equitable access to diagnosis, treatment, care and social opportunity.
Our key message for Rare Disease Day 2020 is that:
- Rare is many worldwide.
- Rare is strong every day.
- Rare is proud everywhere.
Thank you for participating!
