Official minority diseases day

February 2022


Today the BCN PID Foundation has attended the Conference on Minority Diseases that has been held at the Vall d'Hebron Barcelona Hospital Campus with the aim of publicizing and raising awareness of these pathologies by the hand of professionals, research staff and patients. They are often very little known, even to medical professionals; For this reason, patients and families must go through numerous tests and specialists before having a proper diagnosis.

This Day is held on the occasion of the World Day of Minority Diseases, which is celebrated on Monday, February 28th.

To give visibility to minority diseases, including PIDs, the Hospital proposes you to take a picture of yourself making the symbol of this world day (putting your hands in the shape of a butterfly) and share it on your social networks with the hashtag #VHMinorityDiseases!
