This global survey initiative is open to anyone from any country in the world who is living with a rare disease, as well their family members and carers. The more people who respond and share their experiences, the more powerful our voice will be! All responses are anonymous and will be kept in secure storage only accessible to our research team.

Survey results


I was exhausted and overwhelmed in my role as a patient with autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome-type 1, caregiver and advocate. The report of the Rare Barometer survey on the daily impact of rare diseases provided me with validation and a new frame of reference.


I was involved in the diagnosis questionnaire since the beginning, which gave me the opportunity to contribute to the questions, and adapting them to the national context. This is important, because it will make people from my country feel more involved.


We participated in the Rare Barometer survey on diagnosis and got great numbers that allowed us to analyse HHT replies from France, Germany, and Italy, and base our future actions on the needs that emerged from the survey. It was a roadmap that we didn’t have before.


This programme is owned independently by EURORDIS and is a non-profit initiative; no commercial use of your details will be made at any time. The programme is guided by a EURORDIS Steering Committee and is supported by the Rare Barometer Programme Advisory Committee.



Rare Barometer benefits from the input of its Advisory Committee. This is a consultative committee comprised of expert individuals from a range of backgrounds (academia, corporate, policy). Final decisions on future topics to be explored through the programme are made by EURORDIS.
