Australian academics first called for a national plan for rare diseases in 2010, so it is with great excitement that the National Strategic Action Plan for Rare Diseases (the Action Plan) was launched in 2020.
Rare Voices Australia (RVA) has led the collaborative development of the Action Plan. After extensive consultation with stakeholders around the country, the Action Plan has been developed by the rare disease sector, for the rare disease sector!
