World Psoriasis Day

29 October 2009

World Psoriasis Day on October 29 is an annual day specially dedicated to people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.

World Psoriasis Day is a global event that aims to give an international voice to the 125 million people suffering from these diseases.

The first World Psoriasis Day took place in 2004 and was launched by members and non-members of psoriasis associations around the world in order to

  • raise awareness
  • empower psoriasis patients
  • encourage health care decision makers to give psoriasis suffers better access to the most appropriate therapies for their condition
  • stop discrimination and stigmatisation
  • provide a patient voice platform.

At LEO Pharma it is our goal to provide patients suffering from skin diseases such as psoriasis with the very best solutions, and we see the challenges faced by psoriasis patients as our challenges, too.
