Rare Diseases are included in Universal Health Coverage (UHC)

At last Rare Diseases are included in the United Nations political declaration on Universal Health Coverage (UHC)

On 23rd September, two years of active advocacy by Eurordis and Rare Disease International were crowned with succes as the 193 member states of the United Nations adopted a historical political declaration on UHC including rare diseases.

The principles of UHC state that all individuals and all communities must have access to the health services they need without any financial hardship.
