SDG 1: No poverty

Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights, art. 25, § 1

Rare diseases and SDG 1

People with rare diseases The trap of a vicious circle of vulnerability and poverty due to exclusion from health and education systems and the labor market is a constant in the life of rare disease patients.

Poverty is usually associated with a lack of health, education, food, knowledge, and many other things that make the difference between living and simply surviving.

People living with a rare disease are confronted daily (and often from birth) with obstacles such as exclusion from health and education systems. It leads to lower employment rates and traps them in a vicious circle of vulnerability and poverty.

By supporting people living with a rare disease, we are helping the most vulnerable of the vulnerable and thus taking a further step towards eradicating poverty in all its forms.

In 2000, the world committed to halving the number of people living in extreme poverty and achieved remarkable gains in human development. By 2015, poverty had been significantly reduced, access to primary education and health outcomes had improved, and progress had been made in promoting gender equality and empowering women and girls. However, eradicating extreme poverty remains a challenge, with more than 700 million people living on less than US$1.90 (PPP) daily and more than half of the global population living on less than US$ $8.00 per day.

In a world confronted with growing development challenges, the 2030 Agenda recognizes that eradicating poverty, in all its forms, is the greatest global challenge to achieving sustainable development. Therefore, the main priority of sustainable development must be the poorest and most vulnerable: no one will be left behind!

Everyone, as a member of society, has the right to social security and is entitled to realization, through national effort and international co-operation and in accordance with the organization and resources of each State, of the economic, social and cultural rights indispensable for his dignity and the free development of his personality.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights, art. 22
