Through daily practice of internal medicine in Morocco, we noticed the high frequency but underestimated of Systemic Inflammatory Diseases (SID) in our country. This encourages us to create the 30 TH January 1996, an association against systemic inflammatory diseases, said by abbreviation in MOROCCO :ALMS in order to educate public authorities, professional Health and general population on frequency and seriousness of these diseases.
Thanks to many achievements of ALMS, this has been recognized in the public utility in 2001.
There are about fifty systemic Inflammatory diseases, some of them are frequent, others are rare. Diagnosis of Systemic Inflammatory Diseases (SID) are often hard and their covering expensive. In this site, we will talk briefly about some systemic inflammatory syndromes caused by those diseases.
The goals of this association is to try to avoid physical handicaps caused by those diseases especially because it concerns for most of them a young people which represent the majority of the Moroccan population and to develop scientific research in these Systemic inflammatory Diseases.
The course of ALMS had known many achievements either in terms of moral sustain or in economic help. It grew at the level of sensitization and advancement on the scientific research in this domain.
I Invite you to visit the site and I hope, it will respond to different questions raised by these Systemic inflammatory ,chronic, disabling and non contagious diseases; and the benefit to diagnose and treat them earlier. This site will make possible the understanding of theses systemic inflammatory diseases; help and sustain those who are suffering of them.
