Rare Disease Day in Egypt
Egypt first joined the Rare Disease Day celebrations in 2014. In 2016, Egypt’s third year being involved with Rare Disease Day, celebrations expanded to a parade in Hurghada with decorated cars, folklore entertainment and a march. For Rare Disease Day 2017, a fundraising party for children living with a rare disease was held at a hospital in Cairo, with face-painting and balloons. Information was also provided for visitors on the treatments currently available for rare diseases.
