The ARRC motto is “No-one is immune to autoimmunity”, with 1 in 20 people living with autoimmune illness, Australia’s third most common chronic disease group.
Vision and mission
The vision of ARRC is to provide a world-class centre that supports people who are experiencing chronic autoimmune disease, allowing them to live well with the condition.
How ARRC can help
