About the Event:
What are Rare Diseases?
A disease is considered rare if it affects fewer than 200,000 people in the USA or 500,000 people in India. There are over 7000 named rare diseases that collectively affect over 350 Million people worldwide making them as common as diabetes. Over 80% of rare diseases are genetic and 50% affected are children. Rare patients face unique challenges ranging from difficulties in diagnosis, non-existence of therapies and cures, to lack of social and government support. It takes an average of 7 years to get a diagnosis. Only 5% of rare diseases have treatments.
The advent of gene therapies and incentives in the development of orphan drugs has led the once-neglected field of rare diseases to become a thriving and exciting area for research, accelerating diagnosis and finding therapies. It is a vibrant and interdisciplinary field that builds upon shared core resources and services to tap into the commonalities among the thousands of rare diseases.
28 February is Rare Disease Day - a day in support of the millions of people who live with rare diseases across the globe. World over, there are events with the main goal of raising awareness among the general public and decision-makers about rare diseases and their impact on patients’ lives.
IndoUSrare invites submissions from children all over the globe for the first-ever Annual Kids Art Contest, ART4RARE 2021.
This year's theme is "All things Rare". Artwork submitted should represent something rare - it could be a rare or exotic flower, plant or animal, a rare event like a comet, a rare geological formation, or an abstract artwork representing "RARE".
Feel free to unleash the inner artist in you, for a good cause.
Let's Roar for Rare!!
