Rare Diseases International 6th Annual Meeting

We are delighted to invite you to the Rare Diseases International 6th Annual Meeting.

Date: Tuesday 19 May 2020

Location: Geneva, Switzerland

This will be a unique opportunity to learn from and share with other patient advocates and rare disease stakeholders from around the world.

The day will include:

– RDI General Assembly and Membership Meeting (closed session for members only)

– RDI Global Meeting (open to all): Interactive sessions to understand, discuss and get further involved in rare disease international advocacy and related activities

– RDI WHA Informal Side Event (open to all)

Our annual meeting is timed to coincide with the 73rd Session of the World Health Assembly (#WHA73). The World Health Assembly is the decision-making body of the World Health Organization (WHO) attended by delegations from governments of all WHO Member States. It is the biggest meeting of health policy-makers and stakeholders internationally.

RDI will be stepping up advocacy for rare disease patient rights on the sidelines of the WHA and our members will be encouraged to engage with delegates from their countries attending the WHA that week in Geneva.

Fellowship opportunities

A number of fellowships to support our members’ attendance and participation in this meeting is offered. The event is completely free. Fellowships cover travel and accommodation costs.
