We are pleased to participate in World Arthritis Day

World Arthritis Day, referred to as WAD, aims at increasing disease awareness and knowledge on rheumatological conditions around the world. Current estimates list more than 200 rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMD), but their burden is largely underestimated by the general population. Consequently, a large proportion of patients are either not diagnosed or wait for extended periods of time before consulting their healthcare professionals.

More than 100.000.000 people worldwide suffer from rheumatological symptoms. These symptoms directly impact the quality of life of the patients and their professional activity. The inability to work reduces individuals’ self-esteem and increases their dependence on social assistance, family and friends.

Medical education has for a long time considered RMDs as second priority conditions, which means that symptoms might go unnoticed, misdiagnosed, or mistreated if people don’t have access to rheumatologists, nurses, physical therapists, or other healthcare professionals specifically trained in the field of RMD. As a result, people living with a rheumatic or musculoskeletal disease often have to face their condition alone and are lacking information on their symptoms, diagnosis and treatment options.

World Arthritis Day is intended to raise awareness on the existence and impact of RMD worldwide. This Day is an opportunity for all communities around the world to come together and speak with one voice to bring the much-needed messages to all audiences.

Over the past 20 years, TRB Chemedica has focused its rheumatological activities on osteoarthritis, the most prevalent joint disorder especially in middle-aged and elderly people.
