SA Psoriasis Association

About Member

The South African Psoriasis Association (SAPSA) was formed in 1986 and was registered as a Non Profit Organisation (NPO 001-591). Based in Cape Town, SAPSA is an organisation looking after the interests of psoriasis sufferers throughout South Africa.

SAPSA has been a member of the International Federation of Psoriasis Associations (IFPA) since 2003. IFPA, based in Stockholm, Sweden, is in turn funded by the Swedish government and supplies SAPSA with logistical and financial support. IFPA and other affiliated organisations regularly sponsor trips for SAPSA members to attend international psoriasis related conferences in various countries, the most recent being the 1st World Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis Conference in Stockholm, Sweden (June 2006).

SAPSA also partakes in World Psoriasis Day, a global initiative celebrated worldwide on the 29th October annually. The purpose of World Psoriasis Day is to bring international attention to this debilitating disease, raise funds for psoriasis research and to focus the advocacy efforts of psoriasis sufferers from around the world.

SAPSA relies on membership fees, sponsors and fund raising for its operational costs.

The SAPSA executive committee (ExCo) consists of volunteers, all whom suffer from psoriasis in one form or another. Guided by a Constitution, this committee serves the interests of SAPSA who in turn serves the interests of psoriasis sufferers in South Africa. SAPSA is guided by a Medical Board, consisting of medical doctors (psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis specialists) and allied professionals and is headed by Professor Gail Todd of the University of Cape Town. This Medical Board is the ultimate overseeing body of SAPSA, who are responsible for formulating major policy decisions and ensuring that SAPSA is run on a professional level and is of benefit to the psoriasis sufferers of South Africa.
