Rare Disease Day in Hong Kong
Hong Kong first celebrated Rare Disease Day in 2010. Since then, the day has been used as a platform for many awareness-raising activities, including campaigns visiting hospitals to educate both medical students and doctors about rare diseases and the release of a book about children living with a rare disease. For Rare Disease Day 2017, a symposium was held in order to raise awareness and concern about rare diseases in Hong Kong, with the ultimate aim of improving community support for rare disease management.
