As decreed through Presidential Proclamation No. 1989 released on February 8, 2010, the last week of February is declared as the National Rare Disease Week.

It is aimed that all stakeholders such as relevant government agencies, healthcare institutions, local government units, non-government organizations, the media and other concerned agencies will be actively involved in the observance of this event.
