The Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis Alliance (PAPAA) is a non-profit support and informational organization for individuals affected by psoriatic arthropathy (PA) and other related conditions. Psoriatic arthropathy is a rheumatoid-like arthritic condition that is associated with psoriasis of the skin or nails, and a negative rheumatoid arthritis (RA) serology laboratory test. The disorder is more common in females than males. The mission of the PAPAA is to provide support and information to individuals affected by PA. Established in 1993, the alliance also monitors medical and healthcare services and supports research into the causes, prevention, and management of PA and related conditions. In addition, the group acts as a lobbyist for patient rights. Consisting of 1,000 members, the alliance produces educational materials that are available to medical professionals, medical students, and the general public. PAPAA publishes a periodic newsletter and a journal and offers a networking service.
