Why is the event called the “EURORDIS Black Pearl Awards”?

The formation of a natural black pearl is extremely rare – just like these pearls, the recipients of the EURORDIS Black Pearl Awards are unique and deserve our recognition and admiration. The EURORDIS Black Pearl Awards are presented to individuals, organisations and companies who dedicate their lives to making a difference for the rare disease community. Despite important advances, the rare disease community continues to face enormous challenges. The work and achievements of the awardees are of paramount importance to improving lives and finding cures for people living with a rare disease.

 

Why in February?

The EURORDIS Black Pearl Awards takes place beginning February to launch the month of  Rare Disease Day; an international awareness-raising campaign for rare diseases, led by EURORDIS. During February, thousands of events take place in over 90 countries and regions, uniting millions of people living with a rare disease worldwide.
