Yakup's Journey to Hope was created in collaboration with the GA4GH Driver Project, The European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases (EJP-RD). Follow the story of Yakup as he embarks on a journey to find a diagnosis for his neurogenetic rare disease condition. This docu-film features the moving story of one family’s quest to understand their son’s condition. From Dr Ahmet Yaramış‘s clinic in Diyarbakır, through Izmir, Cambridge, Boston and Barcelona, this story shows how international collaboration drives progress and how a diagnosis can change lives.

The video premiere was at the GA4GH plenary 2019.
