In India, 1 in every 20 people are affected with rare disease. Organisation for Rare Disease India organizes a run ‘Race for 7’ on the last Sunday of February each year across the country. The run is organized to create awareness on the 7000 odd, rare disease by patients and their families along with supporters for the cause. Apart from awareness, the run is intended to highlight the need for attention towards research and policy on rare diseases. At TIGS, one of our research vertical concentrates on Rare Genetic Diseases diagnostics and treatment and is committed to pursue R&D with an intent to come up with cost effective diagnostics and treatment for a few rare and neglected diseases.
On 26th February 2022, TIGS participated in the run to extend support towards the cause of the rare disease patients in India.
