World Arthritis Day is the highlight of a year round campaign run by EULAR (European League Against Rheumatism) for people with rheumatic diseases.
The aims of World Arthritis Day are:
- To raise awareness of arthritis in all its forms among the medical community, people with arthritis and the general public
- To influence public policy by making decision-makers aware of the burden of arthritis and the steps which can be taken to ease it
- To ensure all people with arthritis and their caregivers are aware of the vast support network available to them.
The letter will be accompanied by letters from NRAS Members highlighting what it is like to live with Rheumatoid Arthritis. It will be asking for the Prime Minister’s help to improve services and outcomes for people with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
