Remarks National disability organisation with the representation prerogatives for all the people with rheumatic diseases,
according to the world-wide law for disability societies
Our intention is to broaden the activities also to social protection of the people with AS, RA etc.
We take care predominantly for people with AS but also offer support to others who need it. People with
RA etc. will have to organize their own groups with logistic support from us.
