World Psoriasis Day - 29 October.

World Psoriasis Day -  29 October.

World Psoriasis Day on October 29th every year recognizes those who suffer from psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis. The day aims to increase awareness and improve access to treatment.

Throughout the world, 125 million people have psoriasis. In the United States, more than 8 million Americans have the disease. Up to 30 percent of people who have psoriasis get psoriatic arthritis.

The International Federation of Psoriasis Associations (IFPA) presents World Psoriasis Day as an annual day dedicated to people with psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis. It has been celebrated on October 29 for more than a decade. On World Psoriasis Day, our member associations and their supporters organise activities around the world to raise awareness of psoriasis.

Word Psoriasis Day was established in 2004. The health awareness day was created by patients for patients. In 2014, the Member States of the World Health Organization adopted a resolution that officially recognized October 29th as World Psoriasis Day. To further increase awareness for the disease, the IFPA holds a World Psoriasis & Psoriatic Arthritis Conference every third year. Over 1,000 delegates from around the world participate in the conference.

The theme for World Psoriasis Day 2020 is “INFORMED”.
