What We Do
RVA is Australia's national rare disease alliance supporting all those who live with a rare disease. RVA provides a strong common voice to advocate for health policy and a healthcare system that works for those with rare diseases.

We are the voice of all Australians affected by rare diseases.

• Providing leadership and advocacy on national rare disease issues for the benefit of those who live with a rare disease.
• Raise awareness of issues faced by the rare disease community to promote understanding, motivation and empowerment.
• Educating physicians and other healthcare professionals about rare diseases to promote early diagnosis and optimal treatment.
