Arthritis Australia is a charitable not-for-profit organisation, and is the peak arthritis body in Australia. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for all people with arthritis and to eliminate their suffering.
Founded in 2015, CreakyJoints Australia aims to empower Australians living with arthritis to put themselves at the centre of their own care. It offers regularly updated information and support for those with arthritis conditions (of which there are more than 100). CreakyJoints Australia also provides opportunities for members to proactively advocate for themselves and their families, and to participate in research that will broaden the global understanding of arthritis management.
