RA doesn’t just affect one aspect of someone’s life, it affects almost everything. Watch the introduction animation to see the importance of the RA Matters project and its findings.

RA vs Everyday Life
The RA Matters project discovered how RA impacts people’s daily life both physically and emotionally.

RA vs Love and Family
The RA Matters project uncovered how RA affects people’s relationships with their loved ones.

RA vs Work
The RA Matters project highlighted that the physical and emotional burden of RA is a major professional barrier.

We are giving people with RA the opportunity to tell us, in their own terms, and in their own words, exactly what it is that matters most to them.
