National Psoriasis Foundation

MISSION

The National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) is a non-profit organization with a mission to drive efforts to cure psoriatic disease and improve the lives of those affected.

As emerging research continues to demonstrate the serious, systemic effects of these chronic autoimmune diseases, our highest priority is to find a cure..

WHERE YOUR SUPPORT GOES

    Raise the number of dollars invested annually by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to more than $18 million—a 50 percent increase;
    Increase the number of scientists studying psoriatic disease by 50 percent for a total of 13,500;
    Create a community of 1,000 people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis who collaborate in research;
    Publish annual progress reports in key areas of psoriatic disease research;
    Invest 30 percent or more of annual NPF budget in research.

THE RESULTS

Founded in 1966 from a tiny classified ad in a Portland, Ore. newspaper, the Psoriasis Foundation has evolved to become the leading patient advocacy group for the 7.5 million Americans living with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.
