EULAR PAED Representation Committee 

The mission of the EULAR Paediatric Rheumatology Committee, EULAR PAED, is to improve the care for children with rheumatic diseases in Europe.

The EULAR Paediatric Rheumatology Committee consists of elected representatives of national societies for paediatric rheumatology. An ongoing theme is to develop the relationship between EULAR and the Paediatric Rheumatology European Society (PReS), to ensure synergy between the organisations and avoid duplication of effort. 

The remit of the Committee covers several areas in paediatric rheumatology, including the clinical care of children and young people with rheumatic disease, education and training in paediatric rheumatology and research in children and young people of relevance to rheumatic diseases across the age spectrum.
