28 February 2019 will be the twelfth international Rare Disease Day coordinated by EURORDIS. On and around this day hundreds of patient organisations from countries and regions all over the world will hold awareness-raising activities. The theme for Rare Disease Day 2019 is 'Bridging health and social care'.

For most people living with a rare disease, as well as their family members or carers, the reality of daily life can include any combination of the following: collecting and taking medicines, attending appointments, participating in physical therapy, using specialist equipment and accessing various social and community support services and respite care. Managing these care-related tasks alongside their usual daily activities such as work, school and leisure time can be challenging.

Since  Rare  Disease  Day  was  first  launched  by  EURORDIS  and  its  Council  of  National Alliances  in  2008, thousands  of events  have  taken place  throughout  the  world  reaching hundreds of thousands of people and resulting in a great deal of media coverage.

On rarediseaseday.org you  can  find  information  about  the  thousands  of  events  happening around the world to build awareness for people living with a rare disease and their families.
