EUROPEAN PSORIASIS WEEK #EPW
EUROPSO presents European Psoriasis Week as an annual week dedicated to people with psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis. This is a new campaing where we want to make more visible psoriatic disease.
Aim of European Psoriasis Week
European Psoriasis Week is dedicated to people living with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis. During the last week of May, we aim to address their needs:
Psoriasis affects millions of people around Europe – not just physically, but also socially, emotionally and financially. European Psoriasis Week aims to raise the profile of this debilitating disease and increase awareness of the effect it has on people’s lives.
For many, psoriasis is still a relatively unknown disease. On European Psoriasis Week, we spread information about psoriasis, dispel common myths and answer questions. We also inform patients about their own condition, so they can feel empowered to speak about it.
Improve access to treatment
On European Psoriasis Week, we lobby to give people with psoriasis better access to appropriate, affordable treatment. That’s why we specifically address key health decision-makers like national governments, policy-makers and healthcare providers that day.
Give the psoriasis community a voice:
Many people living with psoriasis may struggle to get the world to listen to their needs. European Psoriasis Week is an opportunity for the psoriasis community to speak out from a common platform – and have its voice heard.
