Rare Disease Day 2014 is the reference website for Rare Disease Day – containing everything you need to plan an event … or to find one in your area!

100 days to goThis year, Rare Disease Day focuses on Care and invites participants to Join Together for Better Care. Rare disease care means different things to different people and can include special equipment, physical therapy, social services, medicines, respite for family members, diagnostics, research - and more. Plan a Rare Disease Day event in your community that raises awareness for the kinds of care people living with a rare disease need. In coming weeks, you can find downloads for the Rare Disease Day banner, logo, poster, and the special 2014 video focusing on Care.

Last year, the Rare Disease Day website received over 70,000 visits, so this is your chance to raise awareness for rare diseases where you live. The popular Tell your Story, Join and Raise Hands and Become a Friend of Rare Disease Day campaigns are back this year … we hope you will participate!

2014 marks the seventh Rare Disease Day. Let’s make it the best ever! Let’s Join Together for Better Care on 28 February 2014.
