October 29 in the international calendar is designated as World Psoriasis Day or World Psoriasis Day. The initiator of its establishment in 2004 was the International Federation of Psoriasis Associations (IFPA).
This date primarily affects those people who suffer from this disease, as well as dermatologists who help people treat it. However, it is addressed to the entire world community, as statistics show that about 3% of the world's population suffer from psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis - a disease associated with damage not only to the skin, but also to human joints.
The establishment, organization and annual holding of events within the framework of the World Psoriasis Day is aimed at attracting the attention of people, international medical and charitable organizations, foundations, public and private medical institutions of all countries to the issue of prevention, methods of diagnosis and treatment of this disease.
