World Psoriasis Day is a not-for-profit organization that unites more than 40 patient associations (PAs) around the world and endeavours to represent the voice of the 125 million people with psoriasis.

Through this website and its support of PAs, WPD aims to improve diagnosis and treatment, increase access to appropriate medications and to raise awareness of psoriasis and the issues involved amongst the general public and healthcare commissioners alike.

Sponsors of the initiative benefit from increased access to patient associations around the world in addition to contributing to the growth of the market and lobbying for improved access to medications. Some key statistics from WPD 2005:
