The organisation conducts campaigns to increase awareness about the impact and influence chronic pain has on the individual. Please find here a PowerPoint presentation which has been developed to support this purpose. A recent success was the celebration of the first World day of Autoimmune Arthritis on May 20th 2012.

Please also find here a detailed calendar of 2012 that aims to raise awareness of the impact of rheumatic diseases.
