How will the European Year for Rare Diseases 2019 benefit you?

Campaign for European Year for Rare Diseases 2019A European Year for Rare Diseases will be a fantastic opportunity to:
  • Be part of the European rare disease movement and make a difference
  • Build awareness or hold events for yourrare disease in your country or locally
  • Inform the public about your disease by participating in the campaign
  • Bring the issues that rare disease patients face to the attention of the general public, policymakers and rare disease researchers
  • Help to ensure rare diseases are continuously considered a public health priority
  • Stimulate much-needed rare disease research
  • Continue the momentum of the annual Rare Disease Day Campaign
  • Build hope and make real change for rare disease patients.
The European Year for Rare Diseases can be embraced within each EU Member State and adopted as a national year for rare diseases. It also provides a framework for individual organisations and alliances to have their own year for their rare disease.

Why a European Year for Rare Diseases in 2019?

Let’s reach out to patients and families in isolation, create buzz in the media and make politicians take notice of the issues that people living with a rare disease face in their daily lives.

Increased awareness will encourage policymakers to pay the attention needed to make rare diseases a public policy and budget priority and will also inspire researchers to focus more on rare diseases.

2019 is an important year for the rare disease community because it marks two important anniversaries:
  1. 20 years of orphan medicines policy at the European and national level.
  2. 10 years of EU rare disease actions within EU Commission policies and in EU member states.
We need as many of your signatures as possible to support the nomination of 2019 as the European Year for Rare Diseases.

What is a European Year?

Every year, the EU chooses a specific subject to encourage debate and dialogue within and between European countries. The aim of the European Year is to raise awareness of a certain topic. A European Year can also send a strong political signal to gain a commitment from EU institutions and Member State governments that the subject will be taken into consideration in future policymaking. Read more on past European Years.
