2013 was the first annual Rare Disease Day celebration in Bahrain initiated by AL Jawhara Center and Arabian University in collaboration with the Ministry of Health.. Associations took both an educational and an awareness approach, hosting symposiums as well as campaigning publicly in a shopping mall.
In 2020, Bahrain held public awareness campaigns to improve the quality of life of rare disease patients by interacting with the community to inform the public about the latest science achievements towards better treatments and teach how they can contribute to the lives of those with rare diseases.
