KIDS’ ARTHRI­TIS

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - OPINION -

Many thanks for Jane Hansen’s ex­cel­lent ar­ti­cle, shin­ing a light on the heart­break­ing con­se­quences of late di­ag­no­sis and in­ad­e­quate treat­ment for ju­ve­nile arthri­tis (“Our GP said arthri­tis doesn’t ex­ist in kids”, 29/9). When our sev­enyear-old grand­daugh­ter was di­ag­nosed, I was hor­ri­fied to find that aware­ness and ser­vices for ju­ve­nile arthri­tis are now no bet­ter than they were 40 years ago.
