World Arthritis Day

Department of Medicine, MTH organized a walk to raise awareness of arthritis to coincide with the International Day of Arthritis. The walk was held to create a general awareness of arthritis as one in three Pakistanis suffering from some forms of rheumatism. Rheumatic diseases are one of the main causes of physical disability, contributing to societal and economic costs including loss of productivity in the workplace. These diseases not only affect bones and joints, but can also include any member of the body including the brain, heart, lungs, eye, skin, kidneys and nerves.
