Rare diseases, as the name suggests, are diseases that affect only a small number of people when compared to other diseases. There are over 6000 diseases that are categorized as rare diseases. These vary from region to region across the world.
Rare diseases are usually genetic disorders – about 80% of rare diseases are genetic in origin. The remaining 20% could be due to infections, environmental causes or proliferative/degenerative diseases. The most unfortunate fact, however, is that about 50% of those affected by rare diseases are children.
While some rare disease can be treated or at least managed with symptomatic relief, most rare diseases have no known cure or treatment. Medical experts and families usually work towards maintaining quality of life and preventing complications in these patients. Individuals with rare diseases usually require lifelong care to manage the condition.
We are associated with experts and Centers of Excellence who have experience in the management of some rare diseases like Haemophilia, Thalassemia, Sickle-cell Anaemia, Pompe Disease, Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria, Microcephaly, Von Hippel-Lindau & Cystic Fibrosis. Our intention is to be an extended family for these patients who need help throughout their lifetime.
