About Rare Disease Day

There are more than 7,000 different rare diseases, collectively affecting more than 350 million people around the world. Given their rarity, these conditions are often difficult to diagnose and treat. Patients can endure a long odyssey involving specialty doctors, tests, and misdiagnoses. They can go years or even decades without a correct diagnosis, all while suffering physically from complications of their disease and psychologically from not knowing what their condition is.

About NORD

NORD, along with its more than 280 patient organization members, is committed to the identification, treatment, and cure of rare disorders through programs of education, advocacy, research, and patient services.
