I would like to know if HNPP qualifies as a rare disease?

Yes, it does. You can find it in Orphanet, the European portal for rare diseases and orphan drugs under the codes: ORPHA:640 and ICD-10 G60.0  
Full name:  Hereditary neuropathy with liability to pressure palsies (HNPP)
Estimated prevalence:  1-9 / 100 000, actual prevalence is unknown due to under-diagnosis but estimates range between 1/50,000 -1/20,000 worldwide.
