Learn more about how NASS is campaigning to raise awareness of axial SpA (AS) with policy makers, health care professionals and the general public - and how you can get involved
Awareness of axial SpA (AS) in the UK is low
The average delay to diagnosis from onset of symptoms is currently 8.5 years. This delays effective treatment and increases the risk of long-term damage.
NASS works across a broad range of areas to try and increase awareness of AS amongst health care professionals, policy makers, parliamentarians and the general public, as well as working to improve services all around the UK.
