Share this day with others on social media and add the hashtag #BehcetsDisease
We need your help to raise awareness among the general public, healthcare professionals, policymakers and researchers in order to improve the lives of everyone impacted by Behcet’s Disease. Behcet's awareness is necessary so that symptoms can be recognized quickly and patients are able to receive a definitive diagnosis and the support they need. In addition, raising awareness assists with advocacy efforts by ensuring that patients have access to treatments and to increased globalization of research and patient advocacy initiatives.
