Rare Barometer is a community of people living with a rare disease who are willing to participate in EURORDIS-Rare Diseases Europe surveys and studies.
EURORDIS, the European Organisation for Rare Diseases, is a non-governmental patient-driven alliance of patient organisations. EURORDIS represents the voice of an estimated 30 million people living with a rare disease.
Rare Barometer is a EURORDIS initiative that aims to make the voice of rare disease patients stronger. The objective is to transform your opinions and experiences about topics that directly affect you into figures and facts that can be shared with a wider public.
The programme was created because we believe that the views of the rare disease community need to be communicated as a diverse but unified voice to bring about change. By sharing your opinions and experiences you will help to achieve this goal.
