A good life for psoriasis patients
The Finnish Psoriasis Association works for the good quality of life of psoriasis patients and the realization of their rights, such as availability of timely and effective treatment and rehabilitation. Psoriasis patients should have equal opportunities with everyone else in all areas of life and society. The association increases the awareness of psoriasis and dispels prejudices against psoriasis as a disease. The Finnish Psoriasis Association acts as a national central organization for local associations. Over 40 local associations, with approximately 14 000 members, operate around Finland. Their activities are open to everyone. The largest contributor to the activity of The Finnish Psoriasis Association is STEA, the assistance centre for social and health associations. In addition, membership fees, donations and partnerships with businesses and other partners help enable activities.
