Rare diseases database

The fact that about 30% of doctors in Serbia do not know enough English to be able to use it for professional medical purposes, and that as many as 60% of patients with rare diseases do not know enough English to be able to get information - prompted us to action.

After the adoption of "Zojas law" in 2015, which has so far helped find a diagnosis for over 2,000 children, and was presented at the United Nations, the European Parliament and 44 professional meetings, Bojana Mirosavljevic, Zojas mother and her Association of citizens for rare diseases "Life" started a new challenge.
