MEAF hosted its 2nd Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis event in the UAE

More than 50 parents and children from the age three to ten years old attended the free event to share their experiences, receive tips on living with Arthritis and the impact on eye sight and attend discussions with rheumatologists.

Arthritis is a very common condition in the UAE,affecting 1 in 5 people of all ages and from all walks of life.  In the UAE approximately 10 of 100.00 children are newly diagnosed with this condition every year, making JIA relatively common and as significant as many of the other childhood illnesses,” said Dr. Betina Rogalski.

The most severe forms occur mostly in younger people with the average age of onset between 40 and 60 years.

Most people believe arthritis to be a disease you might suffer only in the later stages of life; however it affects people of all ages.

The Middle East Arthritis Foundation supports people of all ages living with arthritis and will hold several events this year toraise awareness for the management and treatment of this life-changing chronic condition.
