1 Raising disease awareness
UCB takes part in multiple initiatives on building awareness programs for communities to better understand severe diseases and reduce misperceptions, stigmatization and discrimination of the people living with severe disease and their families.
Life is something that happens to you when you are planning other things—or solving other problems. I have learned that it is OK to try and solve my own problems first.
Every year, UCB joins forces with national and international foundations to raise global awareness of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of specific diseases.
- 12 February – International Epilepsy Day
- 12 October – World Arthritis Day
- 20 October – World Osteoporosis Day
- 29 October – World Psoriasis Day
On top of those global awareness days, UCB teams organized local events:
“Epilepsy, so what?” – a new campaign to normalize the disease among adolescents in Spain
Epilepsy ‘People’s Meeting’: Danish colleagues partner with the epilepsy community to focus on improving diagnosis, management and treatment of epilepsy at largest political event in Denmark
