Today is . Did you know that millions of people worldwide are affected by rare diseases, including rare forms of psoriasis, like GPP?

What is equity for people living with a rare disease?

It means social opportunity, non-discrimination in education and work, and equitable access to health, social care, diagnosis and treatment 💙🌟👩‍⚕️
