Today is #RareDiseaseDay!

On 28 February 2018, the eleventh edition of Rare Disease Day will see thousands of people from all over the world come together to advocate for more research on rare diseases. Over the last few decades, funds dedicated to rare disease research have increased. But it can’t stop there.

There is so much to be said in the fight to increase rare disease research that the theme for Rare Disease Day 2018 is research, continuing on from Rare Disease Day 2017!  Rare Disease Day 2018 offers participants the opportunity to be part of a global call on policy makers, researchers, companies and healthcare professionals to increasingly and more effectively involve patients in rare disease research.

Rare disease patients and families, patient organisations, politicians, carers, medical professionals, researchers and industry will come together to raise awareness of rare diseases through thousands of events all over the world.
