Lupus Awareness Month 2024

Lupus Awareness Month 2024 Campaign – Raising Awareness, Inspiring Change

For equitable access to care and treatment

Lupus is a chronic disease characterized by inflammation that can target any organ in the body, in any individual, at any point in their lives. The cause remains unknown and a cure does not exist. Like putting the pieces of a puzzle together, diagnosing lupus can be challenging due to its diverse symptoms. Symptoms – appearing primarily between 15 and 44 years of age – can be complex and difficult to diagnose, resulting in the nickname: the disease of 1000 faces [5]. A lupus diagnosis can reduce one’s quality of life due to the inability to work, reduced social and family ties, and stress due to fear of the future.
