A Resource and Information Hub for Rare Diseases in Africa

Orphan Zone is a one-stop shop style service center designed for people living with rare diseases and their families. Orphan Zone is complementary to health and social care services which creates a bridge between various stakeholders, services and professionals providing health care, social care, and social support – including mental health support, rehabilitation, palliative care, insurance, education and employment. 

We provide a platform for addressing the gaps in the entire continuum of rare disease management from increased knowledge and awareness to early diagnosis and prevention to the best to best practice treatment and care to community engagement to access to best treatments and comprehensive research. 

Orphan Zone aims at accelerating the development and implementation of holistic high quality care pathways for people living with a rare disease to contribute to raise standards of care and support.
