Once again for World Lupus Day, the global lupus community united to make lupus visible by putting on purple, sharing their stories, reaching out to policymakers, sharing lupus facts and awareness shareables on social media, and lighting up buildings purple!
This year on May 10 for World Lupus Day, the World Lupus Federation is urging the global public, including those living with lupus, their friends and family members to raise awareness and share facts about the disease on social media and in their communities.
World Lupus Day 2023 is nearly here! Prepare to help spread awareness about lupus by sharing key messages and facts on your social media channels to educate family, friends and more about the impact lupus has on millions of lives around the world by using the World Lupus Federation’s Lupus Awareness Toolkit.
In a recent international survey, the World Lupus Federation found that 87% of the survey respondents living with lupus reported that the disease has impacted one or more major organs or organ systems. Over 6,700 people with lupus participated in the survey from over 100 countries.
