Vivid Medical Communications Supports the 10th Anniversary of Rare Diseases Day 2018

Vivid Medical Communications – a newly created rare diseases specialist agency and part of the successful Lucid Group of companies – is a proud supporter of Rare Diseases Day 2018.

Collectively, rare diseases comprise 6,000 conditions that affect over 600 million people around the world. Rare Diseases Day aims to raise awareness of the impact of rare diseases on patients and their families to both health policy makers and the general public. Organised by Rare Diseases Europe (EURODIS), and with the tagline Show you’re rare, show you care, Rare Diseases Day has been held on the last day in February since 2008, and will be marked this year by 301 events in 66 countries.

Rare Diseases Day is an encouraging time for patients with rare diseases and for Vivid, according to Alison Cantle, Vivid’s newly appointed MD. With interest and funding support from both Governmental Health Departments and big pharma, intensive research efforts are beginning to show real promise. Several major pharmaceutical companies now have a number of promising drug candidates in their commercialisation pipelines, she added.

Vivid is the only healthcare agency set up as a dedicated rare diseases medical communications practice, and offers the full spectrum of medical communications services tailored specifically to the needs of the rare diseases sector. Its bespoke services include a dedicated online consensus platform to support the delivery of clinical recommendations on disease management, specialist medical writing services from a team experienced in rare diseases, clinical investigator and opinion leader events, and patient advocacy development.
