The American Juvenile Arthritis Organization (AJAO), a non-profit organization, is devoted to serving the needs of children, teens, and young adults with childhood rheumatic diseases, and those of their families. These diseases include juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus), ankylosing spondylitis and other related conditions. Juvenile arthritis is medically different from the adult form of arthritis and may be far more severe in some cases. The American Juvenile Arthritis Organization was founded in 1981 to help serve the special needs of affected individuals and families, friends, and healthcare professionals. The organization enables members to exchange ideas and support, and serves as a clearinghouse of information. It sponsors an annual conference; monitors and promotes legislation that benefits individuals with juvenile arthritis; provides appropriate referrals; and sponsors research concerning potential causes, improved treatments, preventive measures, and possible cures.
