To kick-off 2015, EUALR is very excited to announce the theme for World Arthritis Day 2015-16:

It’s in your hands, take action.

EULAR will encourage people with RMDs, along with their carers, healthcare professionals, policy-makers, researchers and the general public to seize every opportunity to take action, make a difference and improve the quality of life for people with RMDs.
To bring our theme to life in 2015, we will be asking people around the globe to take action for World Arthritis Day by sharing a ‘High 5’ in support of people with RMDs on social media, using the hashtag #WADHigh5. There will also be the opportunity to participate through additional ‘High 5’-related activities.

We can’t wait for you to share your virtual ‘High 5’s’ and get involved!

As part of the campaign, we will be developing a toolkit to assist you in spreading the ‘High 5’ social media campaign in your own country, as well as ideas for easily-implementable additional activities for 12th October and throughout the year.

We really look forward to continuing the great success of World Arthritis Day this year with your fantastic support and look forward to telling you more about the campaign in the near future. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.


Sending a ‘High 5’ to you all!

On behalf of WAD task force,
Maria Batziou
Project Coordinator, EULAR Secretariat
