WIG Rare Disease QuickKit

February 2016

Women In Government is pleased to offer a QuickKit of tools for World Rare Disease Day, Monday, February 29, 2016.  Nearly 30 million Americans are afflicted with at least one of the 6,800 known rare diseases.  Each year on the last day of February, World Rare Disease Day observances are held around the world in an effort to bring awareness of rare diseases to improve access to treatments and medical representation.

We hope you utilize the fact sheet, sample resolution, press release and social media examples in newsletters, on your website or through action in the statehouse. To check out the QuickKit click here.
