World Psoriasis Day

Conceived by patients for patients, WPD is a truly global event that sets out to give an international voice to the estimated 125 million people with psoriasis/ psoriatic arthritis around the world. Formed by a global consortium of patient associations from around the world, WPD aims to raise the profile of the condition which needs to be taken more seriously by national and international authorities. In the Philippines, themed as Funwalk@ Baywalk, WPD is attended by leaders, members and resident trainees of the Philippine Dermatological Society, patients and their families and friends and parade along Roxas Boulevard to make known among other things that psoriasis is NOT contagious.
