All the Colors We Are

Raising awareness of diverse bodies with psoriatic disease

There is a serious diagnosis gap in skin diseases. For too long, training materials have centered Eurocentric images, shaping physician's understanding of psoriasis and related illnesses. People with non-white skin have more difficulty receiving a correct diagnosis. As a consequence, their treatment is delayed, often causing further health complications.

It's time to break these obstacles. As the only global organization representing all people with psoriatic disease, no matter where they come from or what kind of psoriatic disease they have, inclusivity is at the heart of IFPA's work. All the Colors We Are is an initiative to call attention to psoriatic disease and the way it presents on diverse bodies.

About the project

Every day, IFPA and our member associations are in contact with people living with psoriatic disease. Worldwide, our organizations have witnessed the real consequences of information gaps when it comes to the diversity of psoriatic disease. All the Colours We Are is a project to fill those gaps. It's time to represent all persons living with psoriatic disease irrespective of their gender and geographical location.

Together with IFPA members, partners and supporters, IFPA will give the public a more balanced and accurate understanding of what psoriasis can look like among different skin colours.

From IFPA Members

  • We wish there were more materials created with people of different color. National associations could then focus on distribution. Both patient-facing and policymaker-facing information is sorely needed!
