Rare Disease in China

The diagnosis of rare diseases and the availability of drugs to treat them remain significant challenges to the healthcare system in China. Although several strategies have been employed to promote the identification and treatment of rare diseases, they remain under-recognized in this region. Patient advocacy groups, other non-profit organizations, academic institutions and pharmaceutical companies have recently made significant efforts towards increasing the awareness and understanding of rare diseases. Nevertheless, China is still in the early stages of enacting policies related to rare diseases and regulation of muchneeded orphan drugs. Unlike in the US, EU, Japan and Taiwan, there is currently no specific nationwide legislation for orphan drugs in China. Furthermore, Chinese public health insurance does not cover the medical requirements of most rare disease patients.
