Make APARDO your voice for rare disease
in APAC region

As your organizational management evolves, your role as an indispensable partner in your organization's success becomes more noticeable.  You are expected to drive your organization to a path of innovation and change to arrive in the desired efficiency.

APARDO is an umbrella organization whose members are themselves; organizations serving or advocating the rare disease community in the Asia Pacific.  APARDO is your integrated voice in the rare disease international forums.  Our experts have served to strengthen the knowledge, skills, and value of educating rare diseases globally.  We bring the rare disease resources to you directly through:  a network of groups and partners exchanging ideas and information specific to your organization's interest; educational opportunities/events to fit your unique needs; support and updates on the latest practices relative to your organization work environment; and a chance to make a difference in promoting and making your advocacy effective


“It’s great to see the fruitful discussions already taking place, and I’m happy with whatever is decided. I know that we are all in this together and we will make a great team, and I’m looking forward to seeing where APARDO goes!”


—  Fiona Wardman, Co-founder & CEO

Australasian Hereditary Angioedema


As a membership organisation, we strive to serve our members in 3 broad areas, skills development, data resources, and policy awareness.

  • In terms of skills development, we will identify needs & and address gaps of the participating patient groups, for example, to enable online collaboration across the region.

  • In terms of data resources, we will source articles and databases and share them with the members. Such a shared information resource can help members find better care for patients.

  • In terms of policy awareness, we will track policy initiatives affecting the rare disease community in this region and engage the members for a greater voice
