2013 Survey

MSDs already cost Europe billions of euros in direct health care costs; they may have an equally vast or higher financial impact resulting from reduced work ability and the knock-on family and social economic consequences associated with the reduced quality of life of individuals living with MSDs. This report presents findings from a survey of more than 1500 individuals living with MSDs in six European countries, urging the health care systems, employers and policymakers to help those individuals with MSDs who are wiling and able to work to remain in, or return to, the labour market.
