Rare Disease Communities

RARE-e-CONNECT communities* are secure spaces for knowledge and resource sharing between Healthcare Professionals and between Patients, respectively. 

Each community represents a group of diseases organised according to the organ or organ complex they primarily affect, or its cause (where it is known).

There are more than 6000 registered rare diseases worldwide.

* Healthcare Professional Communities are not accessible to patients or vice versa.
