Rare Disease Day
29th February

Rare Disease Day is the globally coordinated movement on rare diseases, working towards equity in social opportunity, healthcare, and access to diagnosis and therapies for people living with a rare disease.  Since its creation in 2008, Rare Disease Day has played a critical part in building an international rare disease community that is multi-disease, global, and diverse– but united in purpose.

The International FOXP1 Foundation is working to encourage research to better understand how FOXP1 gene mutations affect the health and development of our children.
