Creating a world free of psoriatic disease.
The National Psoriasis Foundation is a united community of more than 8 million people in the U.S. living with psoriatic disease and those who support them. Together, we are driving efforts to cure psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis while improving the lives of all those affected.
Putting you at the center of every decision.

NPF was founded in 1967 by a young woman who lived with severe psoriasis and was desperate for community and connection. Since the first meeting more than 55 years ago, people living with the disease have been at the heart of every program, initiative, and strategy, ensuring that NPF addresses the obstacles and challenges most important to you.
Today, NPF is led by a volunteer Board of Directors with a direct connection to psoriatic disease and an executive staff dedicated to the relentless pursuit of a cure for all.
