The Voice of Arthritis - Media Release - 24 March 2011

Arthritis Australia launches The Voice of Arthritis at Parliament House; 24 March 2011

The Ignored Majority - The Voice of Arthritis 2011

Report estimates there are two million six hundred thousand (2.6 million) Australians with inadequate care, who are needlessly suffering pain, have difficulty getting about and are being disadvantaged at work. They feel let down by general practitioners, specialists and the health care system.

It's time the impact of arthritis on the community and the economy was recognised through the availability of:
• Better education for GPs
• Faster access to better medicines
• Streamlined access to disability services and government benefits
• Fair alignment of research funding with the burden of individual National Health Priorities.
