A National Public Health Agenda for OA: 2020 Update – April 15, 2020
April 15, 2020
The Osteoarthritis Action Alliance and the Arthritis Foundation are pleased to present “A National
Public Health Agenda for Osteoarthritis: 2020 Update.”
About the Agenda:
Recognizing the high prevalence of OA and its rising health impact and economic consequences, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Arthritis Foundation (AF) collaborated with other partners on A National Public Health Agenda for Osteoarthritis, 2010. The 2010 Agenda laid out 4 public health interventions for OA– self-management education, physical activity, weight management, and injury prevention. Along with 6 other strategies to address the national toll of OA. To coordinate implementation of A National Public Health Agenda for Osteoarthritis, CDC and AF established the OA Action Alliance (OAAA), a coalition of organizations concerned about OA.
During the past decade, several developments compelled adjustments to the 2010 Agenda, resulting in the 2020 Update. This presentation will describe the process used to create the 2020 Update, which continues to be guided by the vision, goals, and guiding principles set forth in 2010. However, the goals can only be achieved by involving the broadest array of stakeholders: health care providers, policy and other decision makers, communication and marketing specialists, the business community, insurers, nongovernmental agencies, and researchers.
