Mission Statement

The mission of the OA Action Alliance is to work collectively to advance the recommendations outlined in A National Public Health Agenda for Osteoarthritis by promoting action to prevent and control OA and its progression through proven interventions, public policies, communication strategies and enhanced research initiatives.

The Physical Activity Working Group is unified under the second of four recommended public health interventions outlined in the National Public Health Agenda for Osteoarthritis which states that, "low impact, moderate intensity aerobic physical activity and muscle strengthening exercise should be promoted widely as a public health intervention for adults with OA of the hip and knee."
