Living with rheumatoid arthritis: How social stigma, unemployment and the rise of mental illness affects patient attitudes toward their disease in Japan

Living with rheumatoid arthritis: How social stigma, unemployment and  the rise of mental illness affects patient attitudes toward  their disease in Japan

Rachel Arthurs explores differing social attitudes towards RA between patients living in Japan and patients in Europe and Canada.

In recent months, Research Partnership’s Mariel Metcalfe alongside her Living With team have been conducting an in-depth multi-country study into the experiences of those living with rheumatoid arthritis. The study was carried out amongst patients in Europe, Canada and Japan to gain insights into the ways in which patients react to their diagnosis, manage their treatment and the possible support they hope to see in the future. An interesting trend that emerged during the course of the research was the differing social attitudes towards illness between patients living in Japan compared to those in Europe and Canada. Japanese patient’s daily lives are impacted differently to those in other countries, possibly due to pre-existing stigmas and social attitudes. In this article, we examine these differences, consider why they might occur and propose how we can use this understanding to improve global treatment solutions and marketing of existing and pipeline pharmaceuticals.
