Associations organize for instance medical lectures, tours, and swim sessions at local public swimming pools. The lectures provide information about psoriasis, its treatment and rehabilitation, as well as research results on the disease. There are also a number of Facebook peer groups, where one can safely discuss their illness.
  6. Support for living with the illness. The Finnish Psoriasis Association offers adaptation training and other rehabilitation courses in Finland and the Canary Islands.
  7. Defending rights. The association promotes the availability of timely and effective treatment and rehabilitation for psoriasis patients. Psoriasis patients should have equal opportunities with everyone else in all areas of life and society. The more members there are, the stronger the alliance is to drive the rights of people with psoriasis.
  8. Visibility for psoriasis. The association increases awareness of psoriasis as a disease and dispels prejudices against the disease in accordance with the objectives by the World Health Organization (WHO).
