Kids get arthritis too

Please support our campaign to raise awareness of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Just post a photo of yourself as a child or with your favourite childhood possession such as a toy or balloon on Facebook or Twitter (#KidsGetArthritisToo).


JIA is a painful, autoimmune form of arthritis that can cause severe joint damage and permanent disability.

Most people don’t know that kids get arthritis, but JIA affects 6000 Australian children including babies and toddlers.
