Rare Disease Day ® 2017 - Article



An enormous THANK YOU to all who took part in Rare Disease Day 2017!

The first Rare Disease Day, in 2008, was celebrated in 18 countries, almost all in Europe. In 2017, for the 10th edition of the day, Rare Disease Day events took place in 94 countries and regions on every corner of the globe, from islands such as Mauritius to large developing nations such as Botswana and Sudan. Just how dramatic the increase in awareness for rare diseases over the past 10 years has been, was made evident on Rare Disease Day this year, when the President of the United States of America made mention of it in his first speech to Congress.
