Rare Disease Day : Sunday 28 February 2021

Rare Disease Day takes place on the last day of February each year. 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.

In 2020 Rare Disorder NZ held an event at Parliament to call for Fair for Rare.The event called for acknowledgement of the common challenges faced by people living with a rare disease, along with a commitment to address these challenges through the development of a New Zealand National Rare Disorder Framework.
