International Federation of Psoriasis Associations
The International Federation of Psoriasis Associations (IFPA) is a non-profit organization uniting national and regional psoriasis associations from around the world.
Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis affect millions of people across the world. This is a serious global health challenge, with a range of unmet needs. People with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis may struggle to get a correct diagnosis or adequate treatment, have limited access to care or face persistent stigma and discrimination. Since our founding in 1971, we have worked to resolve these challenges facing the international psoriasis community.
As the key global psoriasis advocacy organization, IFPA campaigns on behalf of all people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Most psoriasis associations across the world are IFPA members. Our goals are to empower our members, improve living conditions for patients, raise awareness of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and cooperate with fellow stakeholders.
