what does ifaa do?

The International Foundation for Autoimmune Arthritis is ranked a Gold Level Participant with GuideStar.

 We are not representing the patient voice, we are the patient voice.  


IFAA (pronounced I-F-A-A) is an AWARD-WINNING, global nonprofit focusing on autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases with arthritis as a major component. 


What do we do?  As patients ourselves, we identify the most pressing community issues surrounding awareness, education, research, advocacy/public policy, and support.  Then we use our backgrounds in education, and research to develop solutions. Lastly, for each project we take on, we use a "Global Network"/team approach by enlisting the help of fellow patient advocates, nonprofits, advisors, and subcontracted experts.   Learn more about IFAA
