World Axial Spondyloarthritis Day

04. May 2024 – Let’s celebrate World Axial Spondyloarthritis Day!

World Axial Spondiloarthritis (AS) Day is an annual event dedicated to people living with axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA), a condition that primarily affects the spine and sacroiliac joints.

Celebrated worldwide on the first Saturday of May, its aims are twofold:

  1. To raise awareness: Axial spondyloarthritis affects millions of people worldwide, yet remains relatively unknown. World AS Day aims to shed light on the condition and highlight its impact on physical and mental health.
  2. Sharing information: Because axial spondyloarthritis is under-recognised, the day serves as an opportunity to spread knowledge about AxSpA, fostering greater understanding and support.
