Rare Disease Day in Guatemala
Guatemala first joined Rare Disease Day celebrations in 2012. Since then, the country has held gala dinners, marches, concerts, presentations, festivals and parades. More and more events are organised each year by more than 12 patient organisations which have formed an alliance in the greater name of rare diseases.
In 2017, an awareness-raising campaign ran throughout the month of February. To end the month, technical forums, aimed at improving the visibility of people living with a rare disease, were launched with the support of the Guatemalan Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education and Ministry for Employment.
