On 28th February, Rare Disease Day will be held, and patients living with a rare disease, their families, healthcare professionals, researchers and the whole industry will come together in solidarity to raise awareness of rare diseases.
This years’ theme is “With research, possibilities are limitless”, highlighting the importance research has for the understanding of these diseases, the discovery of new ones, and the possibility to develop new diagnosis and a cure, if and when it is possible.
As people living with a rare disease are often isolated, this initiative aims to let the world know the impact of rare diseases on patients’ lives, targeting a wide public of politicians, industry representatives, public authorities and anyone who sympathises with the cause.
