ASIF Council Meeting 2024: Colombia


ASIF members from around the world will gather in Columbia in October for our Council Meeting.

We have registrations from all continents and expect this to be the biggest ever meeting of organisations supporting people living with axSpA.

All participating organisations will have the opportunity to present a poster and there will be plenty of time to network and to share ideas.  The programme will incorporate talks, panel sessions and workshops and will include:

  • The role of patient organisations in improving knowledge, attitudes and skills among healthcare professionals
  • IMAS and the wider patient-focused research agenda
  • Key axSpA issues in Latin America
  • Emerging therapies and new research in axSpA
  • The provision of psychosocial support by patient organisations: needs, gaps and best practice from around the world
  • Building the visibility and role of patient organisations in professional rheumatology networks.

In addition, we will hold a regional meeting for members and other stakeholders from Latin America on the afternoon of 16 October, the day before the main meeting begins.

We are very grateful to Julieth Buitrago from our Colombian member, Espondilitis Anquilosante en Colombia for her continuing help with the logistics.

If you have not yet registered or have questions, please contact Jo Davies. There is still plenty of time to get involved!
