In collaboration with Obra Social “la Caixa”, the Osteoarthritis Foundation International (OAFI) has developed the program “Let’s Talk about Articular Health”. This initiative aims to raise awareness on osteoarthritis among the people who attend the Esplais de Obra Social “la Caixa”.
Over a period of three months, the OAFI team went to 20 Esplais throughout Catalonia, where informative talks were held on the disease. The more than 1,200 attendees were able to resolve their doubts about osteoarthritis, find out what to do to prevent it, learn about treatments and discover the importance of maintaining an active lifestyle should they suffer from this disease in order to have a better joint health.
“Internationally, OAFI is a pioneer as to give voice to the patients with osteoarthritis and integrate their opinion in the treatment of their disease”
