The health effects of lupus can have a substantial impact on the lives of people with lupus and their families and caregivers.
The Word Lupus Federation will undertake initiatives to bring a greater understanding of the disease among the public and also among the medical community and government policymakers.
Lupus often causes severe pain and overwhelming fatigue that interferes with activities of daily living. Isolation and depression resulting from lupus can be devastating. The emotional impact of lupus can be as devastating as the physical symptoms.
We are warriors -- determined to bring an end to the devastating impact of lupus. We will not quit until we secure a better quality of life for all people with lupus, their families, and future generations, so everyone can live well in a world without lupus.
