Psoriatic Disease and the Family

Living with the psoriatic disease can be tough for both the person affected and their family members. It's important to recognize that the challenges don't just impact the individual but also their family. Both the person with psoriatic disease and their family members deserve support. National policymakers must understand this to address their specific needs. Join us on October 29th as the global community comes together to act and show support. Your involvement can make a real difference! From Awareness to Action! #psoriaticfamily

About the campaign

IFPA presents World Psoriasis Day. Each year, the global community unites to raise awareness and call for action in support of people living with psoriatic disease. World Psoriasis Day has been celebrated on October 29th for more than a decade. Today, World Psoriasis Day is observed in over 70 countries.

Psoriatic Disease and the Family

This year’s World Psoriasis Day 2024 theme is ‘Family”. Everyone navigating the challenges of psoriatic disease deserves unwavering support. This includes recognizing the challenges faced not only by the individual with psoriatic disease but also by their loved ones. As part of our commitment to raising awareness and understanding, we will create resources detailing the effects of psoriatic disease on the family economy, work life, social life, relationships, etc. Join us in exploring these materials and understand how we can better support those living with psoriatic disease and their families.

From Awareness to Action! #psoriaticfamily
