Get Involved

I want to volunteer!

OA patients are OAFI’s reason for being. They are the engine that motivates and encourages us to continue with our work. To volunteer for the Foundation means committing to our cause and helping us carry out our initiatives. Sometimes, we need the support of volunteers to publicize the awareness activities we carry out, participate in their organization and development, find out the experience and opinion of participants regarding the disease and to be part of study groups on the pathology. In other words, we need people who help us give a voice to osteoarthritis and grant it the importance it deserves in our society.

If you wish to collaborate with us, please fill in the following form and we will contact you:
