#1in15 South Africans are affected by rare diseases
That's the equivalent of 1 player in every rugby team!
Whilst uniquely they may be rare, with more than 7000 known rare diseases, collectively they are more common than anticipated.
At Rare Diseases South Africa, we’re doing our best to support those 4.1 million South Africans who have been, or will be, diagnosed with a rare disease or congenital disorder in their lifetime.
Our mission is to ensure a better tomorrow for all those impacted.
Support Rare Diseases SA, in any way you are able to, and invest in a better tomorrow for the 1 in 15 South Africans that are, or who will be, impacted by a rare disease or congenital disorder at some point in their lives.
Rare Diseases South Africa is a registered Non-Profit Organisation (NPO 120-991) and relies on donations and contributions from the public to enable us to continue our work in advocacy and research.
Back the team who supports the #1in15.
