International Congress of OA Patients Online 2020

International Congress



During the days 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th of November, the Osteoarthritis Foundation International will organize the IV International Congress of OA Patients. Due to the peculiar situation we are experiencing this year, the Congress will be held online to preserve the safety of our patients. The presentations, debates, and round tables will be broadcasted live on the OAFI YouTube channel.

Online edition

The IV edition of the Congress is marked by the COVID-19 pandemic. To maintain safety and prevention measures against the pandemic and above all to guarantee the protection and well-being of our patients, we have adapted the Congress to a virtual and online environment, so that anyone can have access from home.

Every day, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (CEST), you can watch online the round tables, the presentations, and follow the debates on the OAFI YouTube channel. Also, you will have the possibility to recover all the contents of the Congress permanently on our channel. The access to the videos is free thanks to the collaboration and support of many entities and partners.
