Unleashing our community’s full potential

As the only global organization uniting people living with psoriatic disease worldwide, IFPA is the global leader in fighting psoriatic disease. IFPA launches a new strategy to unite, strengthen, and lead diverse stakeholders towards a common goal.

Over the past 50 years, IFPA has fought to gain political support and recognition for people living with psoriatic disease. Together, we have achieved tremendous breakthroughs. Now, it is time to act. IFPA unites the global community to speak up for the unmet needs of people affected by psoriatic disease, and insist on national implementation of the recommendations set out in the WHO Global Report on Psoriasis.

Vision

A future where all people living with psoriatic disease enjoy good health and wellbeing, free from stigma and preventable disability and comorbidities.

Mission

Unite, strengthen and lead the global psoriatic disease community to improve the lives of all people affected by psoriatic disease.

"The 2021-2030 strategy is inspiring and gives a new energy to our work."

Jaime Melancia, President, PsoPortugal


Strategic goals

IFPA has formulated five strategic goals to inform change toward a future where all people living with psoriatic disease enjoy good health and wellbeing. The interrelated goals are equally important and support each other.

  • Goal 1 – Ensure global representation: Boost the voices of everyone living with psoriatic disease, everywhere.
  • Goal 2 – Lead global advocacy: Fight for the interests of people affected by psoriatic disease. Demand representation on global health and development agendas.
  • Goal 3 – Strengthen member capacity: Strengthen IFPA members. Raise national support for people living with psoriatic disease.
  • Goal 4 – Share knowledge: Close the gap between knowledge and action. Unleash findings to trigger breakthroughs for people living with psoriatic disease.
  • Goal 5 – Unite stakeholders: Build alliances with psoriatic disease stakeholders. Transform global, regional, and national collaboration.


IFPA’s new identity gives global flavour to our local actions.

Psoriatic disease
