Arthritis Australia

Arthritis Australia Support Appeal

Nearly one in five Australians - that's 3.85 million people - has arthritis. Arthritis Australia is the peak arthritis organisation in Australia. It is supported by affiliate offices in every state and territory.

Arthritis is the major cause of disability and chronic pain in Australia, with 3.85 million Australians affected at a cost to our economy of more than $23.9 billion each year in medical care and indirect costs such as loss of earnings and lost production.

There is a widely held belief that arthritis is simply a consequence of age, the pain of growing old. But it is not a natural part of ageing. In fact 2.4 million people suffering from the disease are of working age.

How will the funds be used?

  • To fund research into the treatment, prevention and cure of arthritis
  • To provide support and information to people with arthritis as well as their family and friends
  • To advocate on behalf of health consumers to leaders in business, industry and government
  • To help raise awareness in the community
