Support World Arthritis Day

World Arthritis Day was established in 1996 by Arthritis and Rheumatism International (ARI) and is celebrated each year on 12 October.

Now, people with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) from around the world can join together to make their voices heard on this day. World Arthritis Day is an ideal focus for organisations to raise awareness of issues affecting people with RMDs and for individuals to support campaigns.

Rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) encompass more than 200 different conditions including inflammatory diseases from rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondilitis to degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. In the industrialized world RMDs affect more individuals than any other disease group.
