About The Event
Advancing Rare Disease Programs

The Asia Pacific Alliance of Rare Disease Organizations (APARDO) brings together patient advocate leaders from across the Asia Pacific region representing rare diseases and rare cancers, with the goals of sharing experiences and learning, increasing the patient voice, and working  together on common goals, facilitating research, sharing resources and best practices, and collaborating on joint initiatives.

Since 2021, countries across the Asia Pacific (APAC) region were slowly returning to "normal" with events becoming "in-person" once again.

This year, we are happy to announce that our annual conference will be held in-person and in Thailand!

With seven planned sessions, collaboration roundtables and networking opportunities over the course of two-and-a-half-days, we hope you will join us as a sponsor and as a participant.


  • Presentations by and discussions between multiple stakeholders

  • Opportunities to network with patient advocates from across the Asia Pacific
