Arab Adult Arthritis Awareness Group
The Arab Adult Arthritis Awareness Group has been launched under the umbrella of the Arab League of Association for Rheumatology (ArLAR), as one of the Special Interest Groups (SIG)
This group was founded as an initiative by Dr. Hussein Halabi and Dr. Lina El-Kibbi from Saudi Arabia.
This group consists of 16 Rheumatologists representing 14 Arab countries.
This group promotes awareness about rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases in Arabic, in addition to English, and French in order to reach all members of the society in various Arabic countries and more.
The idea of establishing this group came to meet patients' inquiries about information related to rheumatic diseases, in Arabic language, on scientific websites and the social media.
The group has chosen the month of February of every year as a special month to raise awareness about rheumatic diseases mainly in Arabic language in addition to English and French.
The vision of the group is to raise the level of health awareness among members of the Arab communities in general and patients about rheumatic, bone, and joint diseases. This is in addition to offering the best to improve the health of the patients affected by these diseases.
We hope to achieve the desired goals by implementing awareness programs about rheumatic diseases. This can be achieved through special workshops under the supervision of specialist doctors, and direct speech to all members of the Arab communities through the social media
