MAAR is organization which  promotes and manages a multitude of activities in areas of research, treatment and  patient care in rheumatic diseases in Macedonia on national level. Education  and training in rheumatology is one of the key strategic areas of activity of  MAAR.

To manage and promote its  goals effectively, MAAR has set up a structure of managerial bodies, Assembly  and Administrative Committee.   From the  membership of the Organization are elected a president, a vice-president, a general  secretary and a treasurer of the Organization.

A major advance is the establishment  of the Macedonian Social League against Rheumatism - NORA in 2007.
