Rare Disease Day
Rare Disease Day is the globally-coordinated movement on rare diseases, where the efforts joined in the work towards equity
in social opportunities, access to healthcare and treatments
for people diagnosed with a rare disease.

Since its creation in 2008, Rare Disease Day has played
a critical part in building an international rare disease community that is multi-disease, global, and diverse -
but united in purpose.

Rare Disease Day is observed every year on 28 February
(or 29 in leap years) - the rarest day of the year.
Rare Disease Day was set up and is coordinated by EURORDIS and 65+ national alliance patient organisation partners.
Rare Disease Day provides an energy and focal point that enables rare diseases advocacy work to progress on the local, national and international levels.
