WPD 2019 logo Let's get connected

On October 29, 2019, we celebrated the 15th annual World Psoriasis Day. This year’s theme was CONNECTED. For the first time, the IFPA Secretariat, World Psoriasis Day Committee, and World Psoriasis Day Working Group collaborated to develop pillars and messages under our theme to explain all of the ways that psoriasis connects us.

We would like to acknowledge IFPA’s partners and the networks of which IFPA is a part for appreciated collaboration during World Psoriasis Day 2019. Working together, we were able to highlight psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis on the stage of global health advocacy for World Psoriasis Day. Thank you NCD Alliance, Global Health Council, International Alliance of Dermatology Patient Organizations, and International Alliance of Patients' Organizations.

We would also like to acknowledge the International Psoriasis Council and the International League of Dermatological Societies who we are glad to partner with on the development of the Global Psoriasis Atlas. We celebrate the entire Global Psoriasis Atlas team for their remarkable achievement launching the Atlas website on World Psoriasis Day 2019.
