2018 events in Nigeria

Rare Disease Day in Nigeria

Rare Disease Day was celebrated for the first time in Nigeria in 2017! A day of talks was held to increase understanding of rare diseases and the problems facing Nigerian patients. Topics included how society could change its attitude to rare disease patients, as well as the need for funding for rare disease research.

On the back of the success of the inaugural Rare Disease Day in 2017, Rare Disease Day 2018 saw an increased involvement and social media presence.
