RareConnect was created by European Rare Disease Organization (EURORDIS) to provide a safe space where individuals and families affected by rare diseases can connect with each other, share vital experiences, and find helpful information and resources.
The RareConnect project uses volunteer moderators from patient groups to ensure quality information is exchanged on the forum and a safe, supportive environment is created for all members to feel comfortable when communicating. Moderators are drawn from expert patients nominated by the participating patient groups and are supported by full-time Online Patient Community Managers at EURORDIS.

To launch a community in RareConnect we often work with patient groups from different countries. We also follow these steps.
