Psoriatic disease is more than skin deep. The world has now come together to fight the disease and all its complexities. We need to stand united and change the lives of millions of people afflicted with psoriatic disease.
In 2014, the United Nations (UN), through the World Health Organization (WHO), committed to tackling psoriasis as a pressing health concern and aid people living with psoriatic disease. However, we have yet to see widespread action among the UN member states seven years later.
To this end, the International Federation of Psoriasis Associations (IFPA) has spearheaded the World Psoriasis Day petition. Through this petition, you can be involved and spark action now. Make a genuine impact on the lives of people living with psoriatic disease all over the world. Challenge your government to improve multidisciplinary care and deliver equal access to treatment. We should demand progress and change in how the disease is perceived, even within the medical community. Speak up for everyone living with psoriatic disease and stop the stigma.
