‘Conquer Your Ankylosing Spondylitis’. Our efforts are driven by a passionate belief that we can significantly reduce the suffering of Ankylosing Spondylitis. For those yet undiagnosed, it can be reduced by raising awareness & cutting down on the diagnostic delay. For AS warriors, it can be reduced by empowering them to take informed decisions to live a healthy and fulfilling life.
We would like to grow as a platform for raising awareness & for mutually beneficial patient- rheumatologist interaction.
- Raise awareness about Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) among general public.
- Raise awareness about Ankylosing Spondylitis among Family physicians & other specialties.
- Provide the correct information & help AS warriors in taking the right decisions.
- Create a platform for healthy interaction between Rheumatologists, AS warriors & allied healthcare professionals for finding solutions & research.
- Forming local support groups for Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) warriors
- Work with Rheumatologists, Indian Rheumatology Association & government bodies towards insurance inclusion & reducing costs of biologics.
