In this order in which we try to adapt to new norms in order to create sustainability in a global dimension and in every field, we aim to contribute by creating a situation where the contributions of you valuable scientists will be discussed. For this reason, we aim to hold a congress with the valuable contributions of scientists who observe, research, and analyze the fields of change in the new order. Our congress, which will accept the papers of researchers who want to contribute to their research in this regard, will be held online via ZOOM.

Hifo-DER was founded in Turkey in December 2019 to create awareness for Hypophosphatasia Disease which is a rare disease in the world.

It is difficult to diagnose and treatment individuals who have rare diseases. For this reason, patients and patient relatives have various problems. There are limited medications to cure these diseases and it is not easy to have these medications called “orphan medication”. To involve closely and find solutions to problems of patients who have rare diseases and their relatives is both responsibility of our state and also civil society. It is necessary to raise awareness of civil society and to strengthen civil initiatives about rare diseases.
