Since 2011, participation in Rare Disease Day in Uruguay has included organising fundraising events and launching a publicity campaign, as well as the promotion of new rare disease policy. In Uruguay the National Awareness Week for Rare Diseases is held over the last week of February in coordination with Rare Disease Day.
Every year, people living with rare diseases in Uruguay come together with their friends and family to celebrate Rare Disease Day. To celebrate in 2020 the Montevideo landmark was lit up in the rare disease day colours. For three days the landmark was coloured with hope helping to raise awareness for those living with rare diseases.
