The International Federation of Psoriasis Associations (IFPA) is honoured to invite you to the 3rd World Psoriasis & Psoriatic Arthritis Conference 2012, in Stockholm, Sweden June 27 - July 1, 2012. IFPA is a non-profit association made up of psoriasis associations from around the world who are devoted to improving the quality of life for people who have psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. The World Conference was first held in 2006, and the latest conference, in 2009, attracted nearly 1 000 dermatologists, rheumatologists, scientists, patient leaders and industry representatives from all over the world. The theme for the conference - "Psoriasis - a global health challenge" - recognizes the many diverse and emerging issues involved with psoriasis raised by the patients themselves. The comprehensive program will address a broad spectrum of practical, clinical and scientific aspects of the disease, and will be presented by the leaders in the field, both from the dermatological and rheumatological side.
