Victory for Rare Disease Patients as Rare Diseases included in UN Political Declaration on UHC

12 December 2019: On Universal Health Coverage Day, people all around the globe support a united call for action, to make Universal Health Care (UHC) available to all, without having to endure the severe financial, burdens. Since 2017, EURORDIS and Rare Diseases International (RDI) have been working tirelessly to have rare diseases included in the UN Political Declaration on UHC, to support and help the people living with rare conditions.

On September 23rd, all 193 UN Member states adopted the Political Declaration on UHC, marking a momentous occasion in the fight against rare diseases. EURORDIS have published a piece on their website, which describes the sequence of events  which led to acceptance of the Declaration, as well as the positive impacts this will have within the rare disease community.
