The Spondylitis Association of Norway (SpAfo Norge) is set up and run by volunteers. The association gives information and help to patients and caregivers with any form for spondyloarthritis; like ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerous colitis, reactive arthritis, undifferentiated arthritis and spondyloarthritis in children.
The organization is built upon the experience through more than three decades of patient advocacy work in Norway. There are members from all over the country.
The association believes that knowledge is power and want to bring this to the AS community, so patients can have better quality of life. Its goal is also to raise awareness for AS in the general public, among health professionals and politicians.
A member magazine ‘Spondylitten’ is produced four times a year, with articles about rheumatology research, medication, treatment, patient rights, work life and how to live better with a chronic disease.
The website www.spondylitten.no also provides news and thorough information about all the spondyloarthritis diagnoses and how to live well with lifelong diseases like these.
