Rare Disease Day 2022

28 February 2018 marks the 14th edition of Rare Disease Day, coordinated by EURORDIS, aiming to raise awareness about rare diseases and their impact on patients' lives. The central message of this year's campaign "Rare is many. Rare is strong. Rare is proud" focuses on reframing the word 'rare', representing over 6000 rare diseases and affecting an estimated 300 million people worldwide. This year's campaign seeks to relay patient stories across diseases and borders through the dissemination of multilingual promotional materials for social media and the Rare Disease Day 2021 animated video, translated in thirty-seven languages. You can get involved on social media by using #RareDiseaseDay to share your colours with the rare disease community. More information: Rare Disease Day 2022
