Our Mission

Our ambition is big but our mission is simple.

What have we achieved so far?

We received input from 121,800 people with self-reported psoriasis across 184 countries on how living with this chronic illness impacts their well-being. Our study shows that living with psoriasis impacts people’s quality of life across a wide spectrum of subjective well-being indicators. When people report severe symptoms, they also report lower levels of happiness. Using the World Happiness Report 2017 as a benchmark, our study shows that people living with severe psoriasis in some countries report 30% lower levels of happiness than their fellow citizens. What stands out is the particular ranking of all 19 countries according to their average happiness levels.
