In May 2019, citizens across the EU will vote for the Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) they want to represent them for the next five years.
In March 2019, EURORDIS launched a pledge for rare diseases. Now is the time to call on your returning MEP or a candidate MEP to pledge their support for rare diseases and to support a new political framework that:
- Enables all people living with a rare disease to receive an accurate diagnosis and appropriate care within one year of coming to medical attention
- Supports holistic care and social systems that are inclusive of people living with a rare disease, throughout their lives
- Seizes opportunities in science and innovation that embody hope for people living with rare diseases and their carers and can change their lives
