Arthritis is the nation's leading cause of disability. It robs one in every five adults and 300,000 children of living life to its fullest. The Arthritis Foundation leads the way by helping people with arthritis live better today and creates better tomorrows through new treatments, better access and, ultimately, cures. We do this by:
Funding life-changing research that has restored mobility in patients for more than six decades, fighting for health care policies that improve the lives of the millions of Americans with arthritis, and partnering with families to provide empowering programs and information.
As the nation's largest private funder of research, public health programs and advocacy on behalf of the 50 million Americans with arthritis, the Arthritis Foundation has set an impact goal to reduce the number of people suffering from arthritis-related physical activity limitations by 20 percent by 2030.
