Bone and Joint Week aims to help get people thinking about one of the most widespread and pressing health issues of our times – musculoskeletal (MSK) health.
For some people in the UK there are still unfair and avoidable inequalities in their musculoskeletal health and in their access to and experiences of health services. Poorer MSK health affects more women than men. It affects more people with lower income. It affects more people living in deprivation. It disproportionately affects some ethnic groups. It affects young people. It affects older people.
When is it taking place?
12th -20th October annually.
