Agora Purpose

What Agora aims:

Encourage and assist in the foundation and development towards user-led organizations of people with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases in Southern Europe.

Provide member organizations representing people with Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Diseases (RMDs) both in Southern Europe and borders and other peer user-led organizations that fall outside the Southern area with a stronger voice at a national and European level. The character of AGORA remains the same and focuses on working towards creating better conditions for people with RMDS in Southern European countries, despite giving the opportunity to countries that fall outside this geographical area to join the organization.

Promote supportive attitudes towards rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases and enable patients to live independent and participate fully in society.
