Rare Disease Day 2024

About Rare Disease Day

Launched by EURORDIS-Rare Diseases Europe in 2008, Rare Disease Day is a patient-led international awareness campaign that brings people together in solidarity with the 300 million patients impacted by rare diseases worldwide. In 2009, Rare Disease Day became a global event when The National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) officially sponsored the celebration in the United States. 


The main objective of Rare Disease Day is to raise awareness amongst the general public and decision-makers about rare diseases and their impact on patients’ lives. This year the GBS|CIDP Foundation International has dedicated its efforts to raising awareness for Multifocal Motor Neuropathy (MMN). Show you “care for rare” by giving a shout-out to the MMN community! Below are some ways a GBS, CIDP, and MMN patient, friend, or family member can show they “care for rare.”
