Posted by
Eimear O'Brien, Brand Communications
UCB is delighted to be joining a global ‘wave’ to highlight rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) on World Arthritis Day, October 12th. RMDs include inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis as well as degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.

People with RMDs from around the world are participating and showing their support by uploading photos or videos of themselves waving to the World Arthritis Day website which is supported and managed by the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR).

Visit the website and check out photos and videos of people near you who are joining this initiative to support this awareness day. The impressive photo gallery shows the multitude of people all over the world who have joined this effort and is a timely reminder that RMDs affect millions of people in all countries and in all walks of life.
