COPCORD

Description
The World Health Organization (WHO) and the International League Against Rheumatism (ILAR) initiated the Community Oriented Program for the Control of Rheumatic Diseases (COPCORD) project in 19814 . The aim of the program was to collect data on the burden of illness brought about by rheumatic disease and to institute preventive measures such as educational interventions. A number of countries have participated in this program and have used the WHO-ILAR COPCORD Core Questionnaire (CCQ) to determine the prevalence rates of rheumatic diseases in their countries. The English version of the CCQ includes questions on 7 domains: pain, symptoms (tenderness, swelling, and stiffness), trauma, functional ability, coping, health-seeking behavior, and treatments received.
