The Bone and Joint Decade

The Bone and Joint Decade was established with four key goals:

  • To raise awareness and educate the world on the increasing impact that bone and joint conditions have on society.
  • To empower patients to participate in decisions about their care and treatment.
  • To increase global funding for prevention activities and treatment research.
  • To seek and promote cost-effective prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders.
