OAFI is the Osteoarthritis Foundation International, the first and only foundation exclusively for people with osteoarthritis worldwide.
The Foundation was created in Barcelona in October 2016 with the aim of leading the fight against osteoarthritis by promoting education, prevention, treatment and research into everything related to joint health and offering solutions to people suffering from this pathology so that they can feel supported, alleviate their pain and improve their quality of life.
Osteoarthritis is a little-recognised disease that affects more than 500 million people worldwide. Despite its social impact, it is considered as a distant pathology only associated with old age. However, besides affecting the elderly, it is increasingly being detected in postmenopausal women, sports people and even young people.
