Rare Disease Day in Egypt
Egypt first joined the Rare Disease Day celebrations in 2014. Previous highlights of the day include a parade in Hurghada with decorated cars and folklore entertainment in 2016 and a fundraising party for children living with a rare disease at a hospital in Cairo, with face-painting and balloons in 2017.
In 2018 a talk was held aimed at all parts of society including those living with a rare disease and their families, patient support groups, the medical community and celebrities.
