Rare diseases are not actually rare, it consists of more than 7000 rare diseases, affecting 350 million people worldwide. A total of 30 million people are affected by rare disease in the United States itself and about 10 % of the world population has a rare disease. Last day of February (28th or 29th) is celebrated as rare disease day to raise awareness about the same in order to make early diagnosis and treatment possible. In the United States, a disease is considered as rare if it affects more than 200,000 people. In Europe, near to 30 million people are affected by rare disease. It is considered that if all the people with rare disease lived in a country then it would be the third most populous country in the world. Countries also have their own definition of rare disease. Rare diseases are also known as orphan diseases because pharmaceutical companies were less interested in adopting them to develop treatments for such a small patient population. The US FDA then decided to design these drugs as orphan drugs and give incentives to encourage companies to develop diagnostics and treatment option for rare diseases. The major challenge in rare diseases is the lack of diagnosis and treatment options, government policies, and funding for research and development.
Rare disease organizations are created in several countries to support people suffering from rare disease and contribute in research, education, and networking among service providers. The goal of such organizations is to improve the lives of individuals and families affected by rare diseases. These organizations help to create awareness and recognition of the challenges suffered by people living with rare diseases. It is important that tools and platforms exist to support patients, their relatives, as well as healthcare professionals and researchers in the search for information to help in the diagnosis and selection of specific treatments available or even ongoing clinical trials for specific diseases.
