In this issue of JointHealth™ insight, Arthritis Consumer Experts (ACE) looks at the real-world experiences of Canadians living with arthritis. ACE examines the critical gaps in care, specifically for those living with inflammatory arthritis (IA), which requires timely and culturally appropriate access to specialized arthritis doctors, swift diagnosis, and affordable, effective non-medication and medication treatments. For Indigenous Peoples and many others living with IA in northern, rural, and remote areas of Canada, these care necessities remain out of reach, worsening their health outcomes and deepening healthcare disparities.

This issue discusses the following hot topics in today’s arthritis experience:
  • Arthritis experience from the street
  • The State of Arthritis in Canada Report Card
  • Arthritis care in Northern Canada
  • Arthritis care for Indigenous Peoples
  • Reinvesting biosimilars savings into arthritis care
