RVA is Australia’s national organisation advocating for those who live with a rare disease. RVA provides a strong common voice to promote for health policy and a healthcare system that works for those with rare diseases. RVA works with governments, researchers, clinicians and industry to promote research, diagnosis, treatment and services for all rare diseases in Australia. We are the voice of 2 million plus people affected by rare diseases throughout Australia and 70 million globally.
