ReumaZorg Nederland logo

The National Association ReumaZorg Nederland is the national Dutch user-led patient organisation, that strives to make a difference in the lives of people with rheumatic and muscular diseases (RMDs).

Having an RMD is a battle against a (lasting) disease, but also against pain, fatigue, loneliness and lack of understanding. Everyday people simply struggle to keep participating: at home, at school and at work.

We work and lobby for an early diagnosis, good healthcare and a healthy active life for people with axSpA. AxSpA mostly affects the spine, causing damage visible on X-ray (ankylosing spondylitis) or damage that doesn’t show up on X-rays (non-radiographic axSpA). Our advocacy aims at supporting people in the best way possible. We want to achieve this together with all people with axSpA and their families, researchers, healthcare providers and other stakeholders who can contribute to this.

As a national patient organisation, RZN is the member of EULAR for PRE for the Netherlands. It is also an associated member of EURORDIS.
