More about Rare Disease Day

Rare Disease Day is a day in support of the millions of people who live with rare diseases across the globe. World over, there are events with the main goal of raising awareness among the general public and decision-makers about rare diseases and their impact on patients’ lives.

Rare Disease Day is celebrated on the last day of February every year.


What are Rare Diseases?

Rare Diseases are just that – diseases so rare, they affect very few people in the world. Even so, there are over 7000 rare diseases. There are many different causes of rare diseases, many of these are thought to be genetic. In other cases, they occur randomly in a person who is the first in a family to be diagnosed. Because of the rarity of their illness, rare patients face unique challenges and difficulties. These range from diagnosis, lack of therapies and cures, to little social or government support.
