In Australia, an estimated 6000 children and teenagers live with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA).1 JIA is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects children and teenagers under the age of 16.2 It is one of the most common chronic diseases of childhood and can cause significant pain, stiffness and swelling in one or more joints.2
It is a challenging disease, but with the right treatment and support, children and teenagers can lead active and full lives.
