World Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) Day 2018

World AS Day is observed internationally on the first Saturday of every May, except if the Saturday is May 1st. Each year, SAA and advocates from around the world collectively promote awareness of ankylosing spondylitis and mobilize supporters to take action.

Help spread the word

Our theme for 2018 is #GoBlue4AS. Show your support by wearing blue, taking a selfie, and posting the #GoBlue4AS hashtag on your social media accounts.
