Rare Disease Day in Hong Kong ?
Hong Kong first celebrated Rare Disease Day in 2010. Since then, the day has been used as a platform for many awareness-raising activities, including campaigns visiting hospitals to educate both medical students and doctors about rare diseases and the release of a book about children living with a rare disease.Â Rare Disease Day 2016 was the launch day of a yoga and art therapy program for children living with a rare disease. This program is hoped to be progressively rolled out all over Hong Kong as it has found success in developing social and emotional skills.
