Rare Disease Day in Argentina
Argentina’s very first Rare Disease Day was in 2009. Since then, participants have been working with the media and patient organisations to increase awareness in the general public about rare diseases. In 2016 Argentina saw awareness campaigns all over the country and notably a ‘plant and hug’ campaign in the capital Buenos Aires. The ministers of Culture and Public Health came to Plaza San Martin to see people plant seeds and join hands around the square, holding green ribbon.
