to become effective
for rare diseases

The Rare Action Network®, powered by the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD), serves to connect and empower a unified network of individuals and organizations with tools, training and resources to become effective advocates for rare diseases through national and state based initiatives across the United States. We stand for equitable access to timely diagnosis, treatment and care for every person impacted by a rare disease.
