EULAR Campaign call for 2019: Project applications for national implementation of the ‘Don’t Delay, Connect Today’ campaign
De EULAR Campagne ‘Don’t Delay, Connect Today’ was launched in 2017 and continues to enjoy an ever-increasing audience across Europe. This Europe-wide campaign calls on people – including rheumatologists, health professionals, policy-makers and the general public – to seek earlier diagnosis of Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Diseases (RMDs) and thereby facilitate improved access to treatment.
For activities in 2019, EULAR will offer twelve facilitation awards, each with a value of € 5,000.
The theme of the 2019 EULAR Campaign will be ‘Time2Work’; the importance of raising awareness and understanding about the need – and benefit – of enabling people with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases to take part in the work place and integrating people with rheumatic conditions in work life is paramount to the future health of over 120 million people across Europe, as well as key to the future of the health of national health care and social support systems. EULAR therefore invites its national member organisations to implement the campaign and join the push to create change.
Applications including all three EULAR ‘pillars’ (health professionals in rheumatology, scientific societies, and patient organisations) are encouraged.
Applicants who consider submitting a proposal should fill-in our application form and send it to the EULAR Secretariat (firstname.lastname@example.org).
