WORLD PSORIASIS DAY 2019

PsorPhil represents the interests of 1 to 2 million Filipinos believed to be suffering in silence with psoriasis.

The Works of Psoriasis Philippines (PsorPhil)

PsorPhil aims to improve the lives of Filipino Psoriasis Sufferers by:
• Educating the patients and public alike about psoriasis with its physical and psycho-socio-economic effects on its patients. A more informed community can yield more opportunities and better living conditions for patients.
• Linking the economically challenged patients to institutions who can fund their medicines and treatments.
• Providing a community for the sufferers that can guide them to having a good sense of being through emotional support.
• Linking new patients with no doctors managing their conditions to proper and qualified medical practitioners.
• Working continuously with the Department of Health (DOH) on seeking ways on how to include psoriasis into the national health policy and agenda of the government.
• Working closely with the Philippine Dermatological Society (PDS) and other appropriate doctors for the better care and treatments of the patients.
• Creating projects for the local government units (LGUs) and City Health Officers (CHO) that will look for people with psoriasis in the grassroots (barangay) levels.
• Helping to create a national psoriasis registry.
• Representing the Filipino Psoriasis Community in the global arena.
• Providing a venue for sharing knowledge among psoriasis experts for the discovery of new and better treatments


Psoriasis Philippines, or PsorPhil, is a duly SEC-registered and globally-recognized organization that represents interests of the millions of Filipinos believed to be suffering in silence with psoriasis. In the Philippines, the estimated prevalence of psoriasis is 2.4% (Greb, et al, 2016). And in PsorPhil, we believed that this number is an understatement, as we continue to campaign on increasing the awareness of the community on this highly unbearable condition, we continue to witness the many silent sufferings of our indigent patients across the country.

In 2017, Psorphil was awarded the Gawad Geny Lopez Bayaning Samahang Filipino Award for the works we do for the community.
