Lupus is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks normal, healthy tissue in many parts of the body. Symptoms vary between people and may be mild to severe.
When you hear the word “rheumatism,” you may think of the aches and pains associated with arthritis. However, rheumatic diseases are much more than this.
For every 1,000 children it is estimated that one to three have arthritis. In Kenya, if you estimate that the population of children is half that of adults and is 24 million, 720 to 960,000 children have the potential of getting arthritis.
