Campaign in your community

Print

Some communities in the UK have fantastic JIA services; in others, they could be better. Schools, healthcare teams and children with JIA all have a part to play.

NRAS is calling for an end to the postcode lottery of care. This means:

  • Implementation of British Society for Paediatric and Adolescent Rheumatology (BSPAR) standards throughout the UK
  • Improved epidemiological data and hospital coding for JIA patients
  • More information for JIA patients about available medicines and criteria to access them

The most powerful campaigning tool that exists is your story. We can support you with materials and our experience, for example in running events or meeting politicians, but you are the expert in your experience of JIA – it is you and your family who can tell your story best.
