A disease or disorder, is defined in the EU as rare when it affects fewer than 1:2000 of the population. Although any individual condition affects a small proportion of the population, 1 in 20 people will live or be linked to someone with a rare disease due to over 7000 different conditions that have already been diagnosed. Despite major developments in medical treatments and screening technologies rare diseases are still not being consistently diagnosed, treated and supported effectively.

CamRareEd aims to provide links to educational support, stories around the world about children with rare diseases and highlight events that are running on rare diseases.

On 29th February, communities around the world come together to celebrate Rare Diseases Day.
