Preventing Worldwide Rare Disease Day
Millions around the world suffer from rare diseases that attract little attention in the public arena. On February 28th, those who endure these illnesses will take center stage in observation of Worldwide Rare Disease Day.
The European Rare Disease Organization, or EURORDIS, first established the day as a way. In the next year, the organization launched a partnership with the U.S.-based Νаtіоnаl Оrgаnіzаtіоn fоr Rаrе Dіsоrdеrs (ΝОRD). The collaboration’s purpose was to encourage support for healthcare, research financing, therapies that are new, government policies and public information efforts.
Since that time, some nations have joined the effort. In 2012, over 60 nations from all over the world were involved in promoting Rare Disease Day actions. The organizers of the event believe their message also is reaching many people now due to the expansion of media websites such as Facebook and Twitter. The 2013 Rare Disease Day slogan, “Rare Disorders Without Borders,” reflects this international endeavor.
