About ThinkJIA.org

Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) affects 1 in every 1000 children and young people. Research has shown that prompt diagnosis is essential, because early diagnosis leads to better clinical outcomes. #ThinkJIA has been created to help raise awareness that children get arthritis, to let parents know what the signs and symptoms are (remembering that sometimes these are very hard to spot), and to remind health professionals of the need for early referral to specialist centres.

#ThinkJIA was formed by Juvenile Arthritis Research in collaboration with a range of other researchers, advocates and organisations around the world.
