Psoriasis Philippines , Inc. (PsorPhil) is a non-profit organization composed of psoriasis patients, their families, and people who care for them. PsorPhil represents the interest of all psoriasis patients in the Philippines in the national and global arena.
1.9 million Filipinos are believed to be suffering in silence with this disease. Most people with psoriasis choose to hide and withdraw from society for fear of being ridiculed and disliked by the public. Suicidal ideation of psoriasis sufferers is one of the highest among patients (10%). By empowering psoriasis sufferers, giving them the venue to be connected with one another in order to alleviate their condition PsorPhil aims to improve their quality of life. Our hope is that one day, no psoriasis sufferer will ever be discriminated again because of his/her condition.
