RheumaFacts is a EULAR initiative dedicated to the collection of data about rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) and their impact on individuals, society and the health economy across all countries represented within the EULAR membership.
RheumaFacts aims at creating a definitive standardised source of information for data-driven advocacy, research, and policy-making to highlight the disease burden, healthcare gaps, and inequalities around RMDs across European and EULAR member countries. This data repository will be based on up-to-date general health and RMD-related information, gathered primarily by the world statistic organizations, and Scientific Societies at the national levels.
The data presented in RheumaFacts will be available to researchers and other groups such as funding agencies, decision-makers, and policymakers who can advance public health at a European level.
