Psoriasis is often mistaken as just a skin disease. With little awareness of psoriasis as a chronic autoimmune disease that can potentially have systemic effects, many people may continue to go undiagnosed and undertreated.

On this episode of NCD Chronicles, we shine the spotlight on the experience of living with mild and severe psoriasis, and the challenges of navigating treatment options and financial hurdles, through the stories of Liu Wei Zi and Rocyie Wong. We also hear from Dr Azura Mohd Affandi, Consultant Dermatologist from Hospital Kuala Lumpur and Hospital Ampang, about the importance of recognising psoriatic disease as a non-communicable disease.
