On 5 December last, the International Osteoarthritis Foundation (OAFI) has created its Patient Advisory Committee. Patients are at the heart of all the Foundation’s actions and from this committee our patient volunteers will be able to make their voices heard when it comes to making decisions, as well as supporting all the activities we carry out at the Foundation.
During the first meeting the committee was given a name, its objectives and functioning were discussed and the calendar of social activities planned for 2018 was set out.
