CAPA is proud to support the Access our Medicine Initiative which is aimed at tackling the problem of the rising price of medicines. We look forward to a world where everyone can afford the medicines they need. To help raise awareness of the global problem of access to affordable medicine, the team at Access Our Medicine is collecting signatures on the Declaration for Affordable Medicine at www.accessourmedicine.com.

Access Our Medicine works on behalf of patient communities to raise awareness about the costs of chronic illnesses, rare diseases, and other conditions.  They have shared stories of arthritis patients of all ages struggling with access to affordable medicine whose voices may otherwise go unheard. Let's gather the support of the arthritis community to help them reach 100,000 signatures at www.accessourmedicine.com!




The website provides concise, simple, and non-judgemental summaries of the evidence behind some of the most popular natural health and CAM practices amongst consumers (with more topics to be added in the future). The summaries are based upon the highest-quality peer-reviewed scientific evidence currently available: systematic reviews, randomized controlled clinical trials (RCTs), and clinical guidelines from major medical organizations. The website contains references to hundreds of these sources, so patients can evaluate the evidence for themselves.


This website was started in 2003 and is compiled and updated by Dr. Andy Thompson, a Canadian rheumatologist. The site has a wealth of information about arthritis (all types, medications, etc.) for patients and healthcare professionals.
