13th International Rare Disease Day in Switzerland

    28 Feb, 2023

    The Rare Disease Action Forum supports the International Rare Disease Day, a globally coordinated movement that advocates for equal access to healthcare, treatments and diagnoses for patients with rare diseases, which takes place on 28 February.
