Rare Disease Day in Greece
Greece has participated in Rare Disease Day since 2008. Every year since, patient organisations in Greece have dedicated the day to raising awareness through special events, scientific presentations and media collaboration.
To celebrate Rare Disease Day 2018 Greece held many exciting events. The 2018 conference was brought to life by handing out coloured glasses to illustrate the different way in which every person perceives rare diseases. There was also a cooking demonstration, a photoshoot on a floating museum and a string concert for patients and the wider public to spread the message of teamwork and the need for hope. To raise awareness among the general public a video about rare diseases was even shown in all subway stations across Athens.
