The World Lupus Federation (WLF) leads collaborative efforts among nonprofit global lupus organizations in order to enhance their capacity to engage in coordinated education, awareness and advocacy initiatives.

Lupus is a significant global public health issue and deserves strong, focused efforts to elevate the disease on the world’s healthcare agenda.  It is for this reason that lupus groups have come together to form the World Lupus Federation.
