Impact of psoriatic disease on women aged 18 to 45

27 October 2021

By IFPA

Summary

A recent survey from IFPA, EUROPSO, and UCB interviewed women from 11 European countries living with moderate-to-severe psoriatic disease.

The findings provide meaningful insight into the experience of women living with psoriatic disease. For example:

  • The impact of psoriatic disease on disease outcomes and quality of life are greater for women than men.
  • The early onset of psoriatic disease results in diagnoses and treatments that typically overlap with a female patient‘s reproductive years and the start of their career.
  • Women with psoriatic disease report greater psychological implications associated with their disease, compared with men.

These findings will help improve holistic treatment and family planning for women living with psoriatic disease.
