The IPPF is grateful to share that we have received a one-time, $50,000 grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative in support of accelerating research and finding treatments and cures for pemphigus and pemphigoid.
Recently, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) announced $13 million in funding for 40 patient-led, rare disease advocacy organizations that are working alongside researchers and clinicians to accelerate research in their disease areas. These grants are part of CZI’s Rare As One (RAO) Project, aimed at supporting and lifting up the work that patient communities are doing to drive progress in the fight against rare diseases.
Rare disease is not rare. As many as 7,000 rare diseases affect 400 million people globally. The Rare As One Project is committed to uniting rare disease patient advocates in their quest for cures.
