In Venezuela the momentum of Rare Disease Day has been used since 2012 to launch a media campaign, to raise awareness amongst the general public and to draw the attention of policy makers. In 2016, there were events such as a symposium for Guillain-Barré syndrome where medical proffesionsals raised awareness for the rare disease.
