Rare Disease Day on 29th February

On 29th February - the rarest day of the year - we are showing our support for Rare Disease Day. Rare Disease Day is a global initiative to raise awareness and generate support for everyone who is on a rare medical journey.

Worldwide, there are more than 300 million people with rare diseases. Too often, these individuals and families are left isolated and without answers to their medical questions.

National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) is the official partner of Rare Disease Day and is asking us all to wear stripes on 29 Feb.  Wearing stripes can start a conversation that helps others learn about the prevalence and challenges of rare diseases.

There are lots of ways to support this great initiative, including downloadable tools to help you get going. For more information, see
