A second opinion: How EU networks share knowledge to save lives

In Europe, there are around 30 million people living with rare diseases and conditions, but no country alone has the knowledge or capacity to treat them. In 2017, medical practitioners representing 28 centres in 13 EU countries helped a family doctor diagnose and decide on treatment for a child with a rare case of epilepsy.
