Mission & Vision What We Do: Conquer Arthritis The Arthritis Foundation is the Champion of Yes. Leading the fight for the arthritis community, the Arthritis Foundation helps conquer everyday battles through life-changing information and resources, access to optimal care, advancements in science and community connections. Our goal is to chart a winning course, guiding families in developing personalized plans for living a full life - and making each day another stride towards a cure. We also publish Arthritis Today, the award-winning magazine that reaches 4.2 million readers.
ACCESS AND ADVOCACY | On Capitol Hill and Beyond People with arthritis face unique barriers to care: high costs of treatment, difficulty accessing medications, scarcity of specialists and more. The Arthritis Foundation is working to address key issues on both the state and federal levels with lawmakers, insurers and regulators, helping ease people’s burdens. SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY | For Better Treatments and a Cure Science holds the key to finding better treatments and one day a cure for the more than 50 million Americans with arthritis and related diseases. The Arthritis Foundation continues to lead and fund cutting-edge scientific investigation to discover more about arthritis. HELP AND SUPPORT | When and Where People Need Us The Arthritis Foundation is expanding our reach to assist even more people with arthritis. We offer trusted information, powerful health tracking tools and ways to connect with others. JUVENILE ARTHRITIS | Our Unwavering Promise to Families The needs of families living with juvenile arthritis (JA) are unique and urgent. In the United States, an estimated 300,000 children have JA or other rheumatic conditions. Multiply that by their parents, siblings, extended family and others, and the number of people affected is astronomical. COMMUNITY AND CONNECTIONS | Making a Difference The Arthritis Foundation’s social media communities and fundraising events bring us all together.
