Welcome to the website of the Caribbean Arthritis Foundation


‘Arthritis? Together we achieve more!‘
Together we stand stronger in achieving our goals!

The Caribbean Arthritis Foundation was established to help strengthen the position of people with an arthritis-related disorder. Our goal is to work for all people with arthritis on Aruba and elsewhere in the Caribbean.

Let’s build a better world for people living with arthritis today and a world without arthritis tomorrow!

The patient with arthritis has the central place in our activities. We are guided in our activities by what is important for people with arthritis.

If you have any questions or suggestions or would like to contribute to our goal, please contact us at president@caribbeanarthritisfoundation.org
