Global Strategy: Musculoskeletal Health

It is time for health systems internationally to respond to the rising burden of musculoskeletal impairments and rheumatic diseases. The Global Strategy roadmap describes ‘what’ and ‘how’ to prioritise and strengthen health systems for musculoskeletal health.

ISPRM is pleased to partner on the dissemination and evaluation of a global strategic response for improving musculoskeletal health and acting on rheumatic diseases.

In 2021 the report, Towards A Global Strategy To Improve Musculoskeletal Health was published by the Global Alliance for Musculoskeletal Health (G-MUSC). It outlines a roadmap for health systems internationally on ‘what’ can be done to improve musculoskeletal health and rheumatic diseases, and importantly ‘how’, across contexts and settings. The roadmap was co-designed by the global community, comprising 678 individuals and 116 organisations from 72 countries. Originally published in English, the report has now been translated into Arabic, Simplified Chinese, Hindi, Brazilian Portuguese, Latin American Spanish and Swahili.
