Arthritis New Zealand is a not-for-profit organisation whose main aim is to enable a better quality of life for people affected by arthritis.

Arthritis educators are available throughout New Zealand to provide information and advice on the day-to-day management of arthritis.

You can join Arthritis New Zealand for a small yearly fee. Membership has many benefits, including a quarterly magazine, local newsletters, information on local activities and discounts on seminars and courses.

Arthritis New Zealand runs a helpful programme called Living a Healthy Life. It teaches self-management skills to people with ongoing health conditions, not just arthritis.
