You are probably visiting us because you or a relative have been diagnosed
with a chronic inflammatory skin disease. We hope the resources gathered here by our international group of health professionals will help you to better cope with your skin disease.
SPIN encourages the development of patient associations and is available to collaborate with them on any basis they may need. SPIN gathers at present around 70 psoriasis patient associations worldwide and collaborates with all the major federations of patient organisations, such as IFPA, EUROPSO, LATINAPSO, and PsorAsia.
SPIN also relays information from patient associations around the World Psoriasis Day on October 29th, in order to raise awareness to this serious disease. Likewise, to promote awareness at both national and international level, we share patient associations’ activities, projects and events via our newsletters and social media pages.
SPIN, as an international organisation, can also provide support to patient associations by helping them in advocacy efforts and awareness campaigns.
Our goal for the years to come is:
- to extend our collaboration with patients associations in Atopic Dermatitis, Vitiligo, Alopecia Areata and Hidradenitis Suppurativa.
- to raise awareness to those immune-mediated inflammation diseases.
What is Psoriasis ?
