February 29th is Rare Disease Day. Rare Disease Awareness uses both a denim ribbon and a zebra ribbon for awareness. The denim ribbon is used as a reference to genetic causes or “genes” / “jeans”. The zebra ribbon is a refers to a medical expression, “When you hear hoofbeats, think horses not zebras” in looking for a common diagnosis (horse) over a rare one (zebra).
Rare Disease Day® takes place worldwide, typically on or near the last day of February each year, to raise awareness among policymakers and the public about rare diseases and their impact on patients’ lives.
