Children across the world are impacted by rare diseases. Some countries are better equipped to help those children than other countries. All children have the right to good quality healthcare, regardless of what state or country they are in. The United Nations also have an aim for healthy lives and well-being at all ages across the globe. When thinking about current and future goals for rare diseases it is important to think of needs larger than our own country. International teamwork is required. When one country makes a breakthrough in rare diseases, the outcomes should be shared globally. Some organisations provide global resources, which help countries all over the world with diagnosis and research. Countries such as Australia can assist by responsibly sharing data, research findings, expertise, and financial assistance.  Contributing to international rare diseases policy is also important.
