ACCESS AND ADVOCACY

People with arthritis face unique barriers to care

SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY

Science holds the key to finding better treatments and one day a cure for the more than 60 million Americans with arthritis and related diseases. On their behalf, the Arthritis Foundation continues to lead and fund cutting-edge scientific investigation to discover more about arthritis - what causes it, what affects it, what can stop it - and what can keep it from developing in the first place. The Foundation’s new scientific strategy will lead to a faster cure by strengthening the research pipeline and engaging creative minds.

HELP AND SUPPORT

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. The Foundation works with health care providers and other partners to strengthen our educational and interactive offerings

JUVENILE ARTHRITIS In the United States, an estimated 300,000 children have JA or other rheumatic conditions. For almost seven decades, the Arthritis Foundation has upheld our unwavering promise to assist them and their caregivers. We’re boldly leading the JA fight, ensuring easy access to life-changing resources, community and care.
