The work MOVE does is actively supported by people with arthritis, osteoporosis, back pain and other muscle, bone and joint conditions, as well as our members, volunteers, health professionals, peer support groups, corporate and research partners.

They work collaboratively with these diverse groups of people to deliver evidence-based research, education, information, advocacy, policy and support services.
