The HMSA works to raise awareness of hypermobility syndromes amongst professionals, patients, and the general public.
During the 2018 HMSAware campaign we took questions from the public and formulated them into an FAQ, with an Anonymous Question on the Wednesday evening, taking a look at that perennial question of whether or not hypermobility related health problems are rare. It is reproduced below, with an update taking into account more recent UK based research.

Hypermobility Syndromes Awareness Week (#HMSAware) is an annual campaign incorporating Rare Disease Day, raising awareness of the various connective tissue disorders and other conditions which can involve hypermobility related health issues. The campaign has run each year since February 2016.
