What PEX Summit Is All About

Turkey Psoriasis Patients Solidarity Association's aim is to support patients with Psoriasis, to inform them and to be in solidarity with them. As an association, we are carrying out activities to raise awareness about Psoriasis, the effects of the disease and its social consequences.

We implement programs that increase the quality of life of the community with our events which we perform every year. The Patient Experience Summit 2019 will be organized for the first time in Turkey by the Psoriasis Patients Solidarity Association.

We heartily believe that this patient-centered summit will make a major contribution to Turkey through international knowledge and experience. We want to explain that “Psoriasis is not just a skin disease but a versatile chronic disease”.

We want to change the false perceptions about Psoriasis and we are hoping to create an action plan with stakeholders authorized to provide integrated services.

We will be delighted to show hospitality to representatives of the world of health, members of the scientific community, psoriasis patients and relatives in the International Psoriasis and Psoriasis Arthritis Summit.
