• Rheumatoid Arthritis

     Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the most common autoimmune disease in Australia, affecting about 2 per cent of the Australian population. Women are affected by RA about 2.5 times more than men. The onset of RA usually occurs between the ages of 40 and 50 years, which are usually the peak income-earning years. Living with RA between the ages of 30-50 can be particularly difficult for women who are often navigating a pathway to parenthood.
