Rare Disorders New Zealand and the launch of their new guide book

To mark International Rare Disease Day and the beginning of New Zealand’s first-ever Rare Disorders Month, Dame Cindy welcomed members of Rare Disorders NZ to Government House. As Patron of RDNZ, Dame Cindy also helped launch a new guidebook which will help support parents and caregivers when their child receives a rare disorder diagnosis. Worldwide, over 6000 disorders are classified as rare, and RDNZ advocates for the 300,000 New Zealanders living with one of those disorders.
