International League of Associations for Rheumatology



The International League Against Rheumatism reincorporated as the International League of Associations for Rheumatology in 2007 with a more focused mission to advance rheumatology in developing countries. ILAR’s Executive Committee consists of the Presidents and Presidents-Elect of partner organizations ACR, AFLAR, APLAR, EULAR, and PANLAR.

ILAR is committed to supporting programs that lead to progress in the practice and education of rheumatology in countries where there is an exceptional need. We fund projects in countries represented by AFLAR, APLAR, and PANLAR. The intent is to provide seed money to help initiate meritorious projects that will eventually be eligible for other sources of funding.
