Rare Disease Day in Turkey
Turkey's involvement in Rare Disease Day began in 2013, with previous highlights including an art competition for children and raising awareness with balloons.
In 2018, Turkey held lots of different events all across the country for Rare Disease Day. There were many symposiums on different themes including special education, current therapies, nutrition and physiotherapy. In addition, there was a rehabilitation workshop and a story telling event to share people’s experiences of living with a rare disease. As in other years there was an art competition for children.
