This fund has been developed in response to patients who have contacted PAF for help with their medication expenses and could not find help. While this fund has been fully designed and we are ready to provide needed support to these patient communities, this fund is not yet able to accept applications for assistance as we are still working to secure charitable donations that will allow us to open it.

About Psoriatic Arthritis
Psoriatic Arthritis is a chronic, inflammatory arthritis that is typically seen in association with skin psoriasis, which are both autoimmune conditions. It causes painful joints with redness, heat and swelling in surrounding tissues that can lead to damage to joints if the inflammation is not controlled, especially those of the lower extremities, distal joints of the fingers and toes, the back and sacroiliac joints of the pelvis. Nail changes and dactylitis (sausage like appearance of fingers or toes) are two features that are characteristic of psoriatic arthritis, although they do not appear in all cases. The condition usually appears in people between the ages of 30 and 50, both men and women are equally at risk. Psoriatic arthritis is categorized into five types: distal interphalangeal predominant, asymmetric oligoarticular, symmetric polyarthritis, spondylitis, and arthritis mutilans.
