Capacity Development

IFPA supports a growing and developing network of patient associations that will move us closer to a world free of suffering from psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Founded in 2018, IFPA’s Capacity Development Program is systematically building the skills and numbers of IFPA’s base. We do this through several initiatives at the national, regional, and global levels.

Mentorship Program

Do you want to start a patient association for people who have psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis? Do you have a new association that you would like to grow? IFPA’s Mentorship Program can be right for you!

IFPA’s members are eager to meet new members of our advocacy community. They can use their experience to help new associations grow so that national associations can more completely address the needs of people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. By following this path, you will be in immediate connection with IFPA’s membership, and fast-tracked to become an official IFPA member.

Peer Coaching Program

IFPA’s Peer Coaching Program takes advantage of the vast skills available within IFPA membership. Matching individuals from two different member organizations, IFPA facilitates knowledge transfer while strengthening communication and coopertation between our member organizations. Individuals from IFPA member associations can further develop skills like volunteer management, website construction, social media, and more.

Solidarity Fund

Across the world, IFPA members are actively working to improve the lives of the millions of people living with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis. However, as is true for many patient associations, accessing financial support is an enormous challenge.

IFPA is proud of the amazing work we see done by national and regional members and want to support our heroes across the world that are truly making a difference. The IFPA Solidarity Fund was created to address the funding gap faced by many of our members, by awarding grants to support psoriasis advocacy, education and awareness-raising.

Applicants must hold a full IFPA Membership.

Preference will be giving to member organizations with scarce financial resources and/or who face challenges in the country where they are based.
