Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus through programs of research, education, support and advocacy.

Description

The Lupus Foundation of America is the only national force devoted to solving the mystery of lupus, one of the world’s cruelest, most unpredictable, and devastating diseases, while giving caring support to those who suffer from its brutal impact. We envision a life free of lupus.

Through our programs of research, education, and advocacy, the LFA is leading efforts to bring national attention and resources to bear upon lupus in order to:

  • shine a light on this medically underserved disease.
  • accelerate the pace of medical research on lupus.
  • build support for the needs of those affected by lupus.
  • elevate lupus to a place of prominence on the nation’s health care agenda.
People with lupus are at the heart of everything we do.

The LFA plays a key role in bringing together all stakeholders -- researchers, clinicians, elected officials, policy makers, industry leaders, other national organizations, and people affected by lupus -- to address lupus on the federal, state and local levels.
