Join Us As We Celebrate Rare Disease Day
Rare Disease Day is the official international awareness-raising campaign for rare diseases which takes place on the last day of February each year.
The main objective of the campaign is to raise awareness amongst the general public and decision-makers about rare diseases and their impact on patients’ lives.
Rare Disease Day was launched by EURORDIS – Rare Diseases Europe – and its Council of National Alliances in 2008
