International Gaucher Day 2021

International Gaucher Day was launched by the International Gaucher Alliance (IGA) in 2014 and is celebrated annually on 1st October to raise awareness of Gaucher disase.

We are delighted to once again join hands with the International Gaucher Alliance to celebrate International Gaucher Day on 1st October. For 2021 the focus is on the importance of early diagnosis to improve lives.  

As in previous years the 2021 campaign will run online with no printed materials or merchandise.  There are many ways in which you can get involved:
