The British Porphyria Association's (BPA) aim is to reach out to as many people as possible to improve the understanding of this condition. Porphyria is a group of at least seven metabolic disorders characterized by excess accumulation of the natural chemicals "porphyrins" or "porphyrin precursors" in the body. The different types vary in their clinical presentation. Clinical findings associated with the disorders generally include skin or nervous system manifestations. The BPA was established in 1999. It provides information to patients, members of patients' families, and health professionals.
