Rare Disease Day 2016

How to show your support on Rare Disease Day 2016.

The theme for Rare Disease Day 2016 is Patient Voice.

The Slogan: Join us in making the voice of rare diseases heard.

Rare Voices Australia supports the rare disease international campaign bringing together scattered knowledge and resources for people living with rare diseases. Internationally this is proving to be the most effective way to mobilise the care patients and families need and deserve.

You can show your support by either joining 'hand-in-hand' at one of the Rare Disease Day events around Australia, or participating in RVA's "Handprints Across Australia" campaign.


If you or your loved one lives with a Rare Disease, please take a photo of yourself with the "Handprints Across Australia" poster, and share it with others to raise awareness of Rare Diseases.
