Dorica is developing blueprints for a new rare diseases care system. She connects all stakeholders in the field, including patients, and advocates for policy changes, and she builds national and international networks of specialists. Dorica prototyped her vision of care through NoRo, the only patients-run reference center for rare diseases in Europe. In the past 6 years, NoRo doctors undertook over 2,200 consultations. She convinced the government to set up an advisory Council for Rare Diseases and to increase the national budget allocated to rare diseases by 46% in 2014, while adopting a National Action Plan for Rare Diseases. Dorica is an active influencer of EU policy in the field, as board member of EURORDIS.
