Sweden has taken part in Rare Disease Day celebrations since its beginning in 2008. Patient organisations have used the occasion to create films on rare diseases and to host educational seminars across the country. In 2014, a film showcased the state of healthcare improvements for people with rare conditions. The Swedish Crown Princess Victoria showed her support for the day in 2008. In 2016, Rare Diseases Sweden hosted a film festival, in order to show award winning and critically acclaimed films and talk about the dilemma of the rare.
