EULAR

 

EULAR, the European League against Rheumatism, is the European umbrella organisation representing scientific societies, health professional associations and the national organisations of People with Arthritis/Rheumatism in Europe (PARE). The aims of EULAR are to reduce the burden of rheumatic diseases on the individual and society and to improve the treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal diseases. To this end, EULAR promotes the translation of research advances into daily care and fights for the recognition of the needs of people with musculoskeletal diseases by the governing bodies in Europe.

Each year in June EULAR organizes a four-day Congress, visited by some 16.000 visitors, being members of scientific societies, health professionals, the national organisations of People with Arthritis/Rheumatism in Europe (PARE) and patients.

Each year in April EULAR-PARE organizes a four-day conference for representatives from the national organisations of People with Arthritis/Rheumatism in Europe (PARE).

In June 2018 the four-day EULAR congress was held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Mr. Francisco de Mey was invited to visit the EULAR Congress. He met with patients, health professionals and companies present and visited many presentations on rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases.
