World Lupus Day began with a proclamation by an international steering committee representing lupus organizations from 13 different nations when they met in Eaton, United Kingdom to organize the first observance of World Lupus Day. The proclamation was a call to action for governments around the world to increase their financial support for lupus research, awareness and patient services.
