Rare Disease Day - 29 February 2020

Rare is many. Rare is strong. Rare is proud

Rare Disease Day 2020 is on Saturday 29 February - a very rare day as it is a leap year. This year's message is that Rare is many, rare is strong and rare is proud!

Rare Disease Day is entering a new phase, focusing on advocating for increased equity for the rare disease community. The campaign message reframes perceptions of what it means to be rare so that no one is left behind in achieving greater equity.

Rare Disease Day was created to raise awareness amongst the general public and also seeks to raise awareness amongst policy makers, public authorities, industry representatives, researchers, health professionals and anyone who has a genuine interest in rare diseases.
