About Us

The National Arthritis Foundation (NAF) was set up in 1984 as a charitable body and conferred the status of an Institution of a Public Character (IPC) in 1985. It is the main public organisation in Singapore devoted to helping Arthritis sufferers, educating our community on living better with Arthritis and providing medical subsidies to underprivileged Arthritis patients.

Our Programmes

NAF believes in empowering individuals to lead healthy and productive lives. For this reason, NAF conducts empowerment and engagement programmes such as wellness and exercise classes, and educational talks /workshops for arthritis sufferers or those who wish to better manage joint pains.

Our mission is encapsulated in the following:

a. NAF provides Public and Patient Education programmes to combat Arthritis, and to help individuals remain mobile for a life time.

b. Through the Patient Support Fund, NAF subsidises the medical cost of financially needy Singaporeans who are stricken with Arthritis to enable them to obtain the necessary medication to better manage their disease, and to enhance their employment prospects and allow them to be gainfully employed.

The Patient Support Fund covers the folllowing :
1) Subsidy for Biologics Treatment
2) Subsidy for Transportation Arrangements
3) Subsidy for Medical Aids/Equipment

c. The NAF CapitaLand Hope Foundation Fund supports Juvenile Arthritis. From subsidising treatment costs to organising activities and educational programmes, NAF helps children suffering from arthritis improve their quality of life to better enjoy their childhood years.

Our Wish List


We hold educational events, talks, workshops and health & wellness activities to empower every individual to better cope with arthritis, and/or maintain healthy joints.

If you'd like us to hold our workshops at your office or preferred venue (or if you've an interesting event idea for us), do let us know! As a charity organisation, as much as depend on the kind acts of many to continue helping those we support, we also want to reach out to many others so that we can all fight arthritis together.
