Rare Disease Summit

January 18 & 19th 2024 at Dr Ambedkar International Centre, New Delhi  


The Rare Disease Summit is a groundbreaking virtual conference organized by the IHW Council with the ambitious goal of addressing the challenges posed by rare diseases to public health systems globally, including in India. The summit aims to explore innovative strategies and initiatives to overcome the shortfalls in awareness, information, and understanding of rare diseases.



Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a genetic disorder that affects the development and growth of nerve cell tissues. There are three types of neurofibromatosis: NF1, NF2, and schwannomatosis. NF1 is the most common type and affects about 1 in every 3,000 people worldwide.


In India, there is limited information available on the prevalence of neurofibromatosis. However, it is believed that the incidence of NF1 is similar to that in other countries. NF2 and schwannomatosis are rarer types of neurofibromatosis, and their incidence in India is not well-documented.


Due to the lack of awareness and resources in India, many individuals with NF are often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. There is a need for increased awareness and education among healthcare professionals and the general public about neurofibromatosis to improve early diagnosis and management of the condition.
