Visualizing Rare Diseases

In the rare disease world, it’s sometimes hard to grasp the statistics and emotions that go hand in hand with having a condition that doesn’t get as much funding, research attention, or media attention as more common health conditions and disease.

In honor of today being Rare Disease Day, we’ve collected some infographics that effectively communicate  the reality of orphan diseases and the people that struggle against them.
