Rare Diseases Unit in Lebanon

Life is a health journey for patients affected by Rare Diseases. Diagnoses and treatments of these diseases are often difficult due to their rarity and complexity.

Mount Lebanon Hospital, in partnership with Sanofi Genzyme launched during the annual MLH congress, the first Rare Diseases Unit in the Middle East as Sanofi mostly focuses on offering innovative solutions and services to help patients affected by Rare Diseases to be better diagnosed and treated.

This Rare Diseases Unit is established to provide services that complement our therapies to support the patients and healthcare communities that are small and often have limited resources.

During the congress, training for the specialty doctors, nurses and pharmacists working in this unit was completed to ensure patients are diagnosed on time and properly treated.
