Morbidity figures vs. societal costs
Opening the EU Presidency Conference on Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Diseases the European League Against Rheumatism EULAR President Prof. Paul Emery remarked that the reason the EU institutions focus so little on chronic diseases might be that they in their work mainly focuses on morbidity instead of societal costs. An important point. Its something well worth reflecting upon as well as trying to change.
