EULAR Manifesto

With the next European Parliament and new Commission term beginning in 2024, EULAR has started working on a EULAR Manifesto to present to policymakers. These recommendations, aimed at improving the conditions of European rheumatology, are achievable by the European Union (EU) and its Member States. The main document is intended to serve as an easily understandable summary of EULAR’s policy tasks in the areas of quality of care, social policy and research. The EULAR Manifesto will be accompanied by a data and research-driven background document on why RMDs should be properly recognised by and addressed in the EU’s healthcare and social policies.

EULAR launches first European patient-filled survey about the impact of RMDs

The EULAR Impact of RMDs Survey is an online questionnaire targeted directly at patients with RMDs. The survey will collect first-hand, longitudinal information about the impact of RMDs on the lives of patients across Europe. EULAR encourages all patients to participate by sharing relevant information and insights into their lives with an RMD.
