Rare Disease Day in Cyprus
Cyprus patient organisations joined Rare Disease Day in its second year, in 2009. Participants have used the day to successfully engage the media in press conferences and therefore increase awareness in the general public. In 2016, children living with rare diseases accompanied football players onto the pitch holding a poster, which read ‘Nature made me rare, you can make me strong.’ In 2017, the President of Cyprus hosted the The Cyprus Alliance for Rare Disorders (CARD) at the Presidential Palace in Nicosia for Rare Disease Day; events included an awards ceremony, a concert and a photography exhibition.
