Rare Disease Day in Finland
Patient organisations in Finland have taken part in Rare Disease Day since its launch in 2008. Various conferences took place in 2016 all over Finland in cities from Helsinki to Kerava, focusing on topics from nutrition to disability law. Other fun events also took place such as magic shows and sledging.
In 2017, the Finnish Alliance for Rare Diseases (HARSO) organised a “rare tour”, travelling to six locations around the country and providing awareness-raising activities for children and adults alike.
