Algeria first joined Rare Disease Day celebrations in 2011. Now patient organisations use the whole month of February to raise awareness for rare diseases through appearances on television and radio, conferences, and other activities.

Algeria held numerous events in February 2020 aimed at raising awareness of rare diseases and their management across the country. Under the patronage of the Minister of Health, Population and Hospital Reform with collaboration of the Algeria National Alliance against Rare Diseases a national seminar was organised, inviting all patients, families and doctors to participate. Algeria also hosted its first solidarity race for rare diseases, offering a range of activities from drawing and painting workshops to clown shows.
