WHO member states recognize psoriasis as chronic, non-communicable disease

Reported in News Medical.Net, this item. At the 67th World Health Assembly, the WHO member states adopted a resolution on psoriasis, recognizing it as “a chronic, non-communicable, painful, disfiguring, and disabling disease for which there is no cure.” The resolution also acknowledges the psychosocial burden of the disease and that many people with psoriasis suffer due to lack of awareness and access to sufficient treatment.

Comment: For those sufferers who for many years socially isolated themselves because of theuir condition, this is welcome news but a little late I think.
