RELEASED: FRIDAY 31ST OCTOBER
EPG Health Media this week launched a 'World Psoriasis Day' supplement on its public health website www.epgpatientdirect.org. The temporary feature is intended to raise awareness of the annual international event, which was held this year on Wednesday 29th October.
World Psoriasis Day was launched in 2004, when a number of organisations came together to arrange global events aimed at raising the profile of psoriasis in the health sector and society generally, while reassuring sufferers that they are not alone as they cope with psoriasis in their daily lives. The event is presented each year by the International Federation of Psoriasis Associations (IFPA), which is comprised of member psoriasis organisations from around the world.
EPG Patient Direct's 'World Psoriasis Day' feature supplements it's Psoriasis Quick Guide; an interactive educational resource containing an overview of psoriasis, its causes, symptoms and treatment options. EPG Patient Direct is a 'one-stop' health portal providing the general public in Europe with information on a broad range of health issues. In addition to its condition-specific 'Quick Guides', the website contains daily health news and links to support groups. In support of this yea's World Psoriasis Day event, the EPG Patient Direct website has included links to patient organisations, web forums, interviews with psoriasis sufferers, news articles and an interactive public poll. The day's main events, which were organised by participating member organisations, are listed by country.
"Psoriasis is a serious and debilitating skin condition affecting 125 million people around the world, however many people are unaware that it can have a profound affect on the quality of life of sufferers, both physically and emotionally" said Chris Cooper, EPG Health Media. "By covering the World Psoriasis Day activities on our patient website, we join together with other organisations hoping to empower psoriasis sufferers with the information and courage they need to seek the best possible support for themselves and fellow sufferers".
