Medix Supports World Rare Disease Awareness Day - 28 Feb 2018

Medix Supports World Rare Disease Awareness Day - 28 Feb 2018

Medix leaves no stone unturned in the pursuit of the correct diagnosis and treatment of rare diseases, as millions of people around the world are suffering. 

 

According to data compiled by the Global Genes advocacy group, there are roughly 7,000 different types of rare diseases worldwide, with new ones being discovered and classified frequently. 80% of these rare diseases are genetic in origin, making most of them unavoidable as family history is an influencing factor in the outcome of a person's health. Of patients suffering from rare disease, 50% are children, a staggering 30% of whom will not make it to their 5th birthday. In the European Union, a disease is defined as rare when it affects fewer than 1 in 2,000 people. There is urgency for increased support and research to be done as 50% of rare diseases do not have a foundation specific to its needs. With this in mind, this year's theme for World Rare Disease Day is titled Research.

 

Medix supports the advancement of knowledge, understanding and diagnosis of rare diseases for example, through its partnership with The University of Hong Kong's (HKU) Undiagnosed & Rare Disease Programme.

This aid is both a financial contribution as well as enabling access to peer to peer consultations globally with Medix' leading specialists allowing for additional information and insights, including new technologies, research and overviews of current clinical trials to assist in reaching an accurate diagnosis and possible treatment for the programme’s patients.

 

Medix Group President Ms. Sigal Atzmon said “Medix is all about providing the best possible personalised care anywhere around the world; providing objective advice, accessibility and implementation of quality medical care. In line with our vision, we are involved in various initiatives to advance knowledge in medicine and specifically see great importance in supporting the public healthcare systems. As a leading medical and research institution, we are very proud to support Undiagnosed Disease Programmes. The value of providing clarity and a concrete diagnosis to patients suffering from a serious condition is immeasurable and aside from enabling physicians to develop a relevant treatment plan it also provides great comfort to the patient and their families. Since rare conditions usually do not receive adequate funding or attention from big pharma companies and governments, due to the low number of people affected, knowledge and understanding of these conditions is often limited.  It is through partnerships like these and multidisciplinary, cross-border discussions between medical experts that we are able to make a difference in people’s lives.”

 

Medix is proud to support such important programmes that can truly make an impact on people’s lives around the globe.
