As World Psoriasis Day (WPD) is approaching (October 29), the theme for 2012 is “Psoriasis A Global Health Challenge”. A global campaign has been launched where people with Psoriasis are petitioning to “Put Psoriasis On The Agenda”. What does this mean?

There are various world and government organisations that need to take psoriasis seriously such as our own Malaysian government and the World Health Organisation (More on this in another post).

Here is a quick FAQ about the campaign:
