Rare Disease Day: Days to go!

Rare Disease Day

Every year, we join together to raise awareness of Rare Diseases, and the impact it has on patients, families and carers. Collectively, Rare Diseases affects more than 30 million people throughout the European Union.

Unfortunately, patients and families still face an uphill struggle when it comes to getting access to care, treatment and support from health and social care services. This Rare Disease Day, we are again joining together with thousands of individuals, researchers and patient support groups to highlight what it is like to live with a rare disease.
