We are not representing the patient voice, we are the patient voice.


MIssion: The International Foundation for Autoimmune & Autoinflammatory Arthritis (IFAA) helps those living with autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases with arthritis as a major component by utilizing their voices to influence education, advocacy, and research.


We are the truth tellers, the change agents for the future. By insisting the vpatient voice is heard, and incorporated into advocacy, education, and research efforts, we are doing work that will influence the lives of those currently diagnosed, and rewriting the story for future patients and generations who will be diagnosed earlier, experience a better quality of life, and live in a world where people understand types of arthritis.


Those who support IFAA's work are those who want the truth told, the story changed, and a better future for those living with these diseases.
