EPG Health Media today announced the launch of a ‘World Psoriasis Day’ supplement on its public health website The temporary feature is intended to raise awareness of the annual international event, to be held this year on Wednesday 29th October.

World Psoriasis Day started in 2004, when a number of organisations came together to organise global events aimed at raising the profile of psoriasis in the health sector and society generally, while reassuring sufferers that they are not alone as they cope with psoriasis in their daily lives. The event is presented by the International Federation of Psoriasis Associations (IFPA), which is comprised of member psoriasis organisations from around the world.

The World Psoriasis Day feature will supplement the EPG Patient Direct Psoriasis Quick Guide, an interactive educational resource, which contains an overview of psoriasis and its causes, symptoms and treatment options.

In support of this year’s event, the EPG Patient Direct website will host links to psoriasis patient organisations, web forums, interviews with psoriasis sufferers, news articles and an interactive public poll. The day’s main events, organised by participating member organisations will be listed by country to help members of the public find out how to get involved locally.

“Psoriasis is a serious and debilitating skin condition affecting 125 million people around the world, however many people are unaware that it can have a profound affect on the quality of life of sufferers, both physically and emotionally” said Chris Cooper, EPG Health Media. “By covering the World Psoriasis Day activities on our patient website, we join together with other organisations hoping to empower psoriasis sufferers with the information and courage they need to seek the best possible support for themselves and fellow sufferers”.
