Care should be universal and accessible for all.
Living with urticaria can be incredibly challenging, with its unpredictable flare-ups and the impact it can have on our daily lives. It is crucial that everyone affected by this condition has equal access to the care they need to manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
Care should be timely and appropriate.
Living with urticaria brings its unique set of challenges, and receiving timely and appropriate care is essential for managing this condition effectively. Every person deserves access to prompt medical attention, accurate diagnoses, and tailored treatment plans to alleviate symptoms and enhance their quality of life.
Care should consider everything including mental health and comorbidities.
While urticaria can be debilitating and hard to treat, it is not just a physical disease and can impact our emotional well-being and often intertwines with other health conditions. To provide comprehensive care, it’s crucial to address the mental health aspects and consider comorbidities alongside the management of urticaria.
Care should be affordable.
Living with urticaria can place a significant financial burden on individuals and families, as medical expenses accumulate over time. Access to affordable care is not a luxury but a fundamental right that everyone should have, regardless of their financial circumstances.
Care should include support from your local patient group.
Living with urticaria you can feel lonely. That’s why patient groups play a vital role in providing a nurturing and understanding environment where you can find solace, information, and a sense of belonging. Patient groups are composed of individuals who understand the daily struggles of living with urticaria and can help each other.
The Urticaria Day 2023 logo should be used on all materials associated with its events. The following logo options are available to download and use.
The logo comes with different colour versions as well as with and without the theme strapline and can be used alternately. The colours of the coloured logo should not be changed. The coloured logo can be replaced with white or black version depending on the background but the colour logo should always be the first choice.
The minimum relative height of the logo for print should be 20 x 20 mm
To protect the clarity and visual integrity of the logo, a minimum clear space area exists and it should be in the height of the letter “y” from the logo.
Scale and Placement
Logo should always be scaled proportionally. It should never be rotated or placed on a busy photographic background. Don’t rearrange elements of our logo or omit any of the logo elements, with the exception of the theme strapline. Avoid any effects such as drop shadows.
