RDI aims to ensure that in addressing the very high priority of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), the UN and its Member States do not leave behind often neglected chronic rare diseases that cause suffering and have an economic and societal impact.
We follow closely the activities of the NCD Alliance, and are working to introduce the voice of our community to the broader NCD civil society movement.
