Rare Disease Day 2019
Rare Disease Day takes place on the last day of February each year. The main objective of Rare Disease Day is to raise awareness amongst the general public and decision-makers about rare diseases and their impact on patients' lives. Although hidradenitis suppurativa is not considered a rare disease, IAHSN promotes awareness on this day due to the lack of understanding and knowledge about the disease. Rare Disease Day is acknowledged in the U.S and Internationally.
