Call for Action

Call for Action

We call for explicit plans by governments, health policy makers at regional level and the WHO to deal with the large and growing burden of musculoskeletal conditions and injuries on individuals and society through:

-promotion of an active lifestyle that will optimise musculoskeletal health at all ages
-preventing musculoskeletal disorders and injuries
-identifying and treating those who are at highest risk
-access to timely, safe, appropriate patient-centred treatment to control symptoms, and diseases where possible, to prevent unnecessary disability
-access to appropriate rehabilitation to reduce any disability, including self management
-enabling people to participate in the labour market
-research to advance knowledge and care
