There are about 6,000 different known genetic disorders in the world. It is estimated that one in 25 children in the UK is affected by a type of disorder, equating to around 30,000 babies and children being newly diagnosed each year. Some genetic disorders are apparent at birth while others are diagnosed at different stages throughout childhood, and sometimes into adulthood.
It is in fact highly likely that every person knows at least one person in their life that has a genetic disorder, yet many people are not aware exactly what a genetic disorder is.
