Celebrate World Autoimmune Arthritis Day online

Autoimmune arthritis affects a fifth of the UAE population.

Dubai, U.A.E- 19th May 2013 - World Autoimmune Arthritis Day (WAAD) was launched in May 2012 to raise educational and awareness information about different types of autoimmune arthritis.

Abnormalities in the immune system lead to autoimmune arthritis such as ankylosing spondylitis, rheumatoid arthritis and juvenile arthritis. Raising awareness about autoimmune arthritis is key as the symptoms are not obvious. The earlier it is diagnosed, the better symptoms can be managed.

From the 19th of May at 5am ET/USA until the 21st of May 2013 there will be a live interactive visual convention that is free for all. 36 organisations from around the world have agreed to take part in this year's convention and most will be hosting virtual booths where patients and supporters can visit, virtually, and learn more about their programs and resources. Simply log in to and find out more about autoimmune arthritis.

Dr Humeira Badsha from the Emirates Arthritis Foundation said  “World Autoimmune Arthritis Day is a great way to allow people from all over the world to interact and learn more about arthritis. Raising awareness is one of the best things we can do for our society and it is important that patients know they can find support wherever they are.”

There are many ways of managing symptoms of arthritis and the Emirates Arthritis Foundation continues to work to support patients and friends/families of arthritis. Some of these include managing symptoms through diet and exercise. A recent patient support event by the emirates arthritis foundation saw Maya Kobeissi, a fully qualified nutritionist tell patients and supporters about different foods and nutrients which help manage symptoms. Dr Vishwas Chhabra and Dr Marcel Schmidt also spoke at the event and emphasised the importance of exercise for managing symptoms.

To learn more about arthritis, join the convention and keep up to date with what's happening in the UAE by following the Emirates Arthritis Foundation facebook and twitter.
