The EULAR Charter for Work - integrating people with rheumatic conditions in work life
People affected by rheumatic conditions/arthritis and other musculoskeletal diseases want to chose freely their way of integration into working life. EULAR supports projects aiming at facilitating access or return to work. In early 2009 the EULAR Charter for Work was launched, raising awareness of the needs of people with chronic conditions at the work place. The charter calls for a real dialogue with employers, insurers and policy makers to shape proper conditions for work ability. New work organisation models are promoted as a way of getting more people who want to work (back) into work.
