Caribbean Association for Rheumatology

The Caribbean Association for Rheumatology is committed to improving the care of patients with rheumatic diseases in the Caribbean. It is a professional organization with the primary goal of uniting rheumatologists and allied health professionals in the advancement of rheumatology through collaborative research, education and advocacy at local and regional levels. Rheumatic disease, the most commonly osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, are a major cause of disability and have a significant impact on individuals during the most productive years of their lives.


We host an annual scientific meeting where members share research and innovative ideas, educate each other, and collaborate on ways to deliver state of the art care across all Caribbean territories. Additionally, during this event, we conduct a workshop aimed at educating general practitioners and other health professionals on rheumatic diseases. This promotes our health and wellness agenda in a more holistic way on a national level and is aimed at raising awareness, enabling early diagnosis and shared care for people with rheumatic disease according to International guidelines.
