Absolute support, extensive awareness, enlightenment and advocate for those living with Vitiligo, for their Rights and well-being
Active Vitiligo Support in Africa
If there one interesting development today in Dermatology meetings, it is including patient organisation and bringing them on from planning levels. I first saw this at EADV Copenhagen 2015.
In November 2015, I was invited to Vitiligo MasterClass in Israel organised by Vitiligo Research Foundation and Israeli Society of Dermatology and Venerology.
In recent times so much has been happening in the World of Vitiligo. Its really a welcomed development as clinical and psychosocial Research continues in different parts of the World, more and more Dermatologists picking interest in Vitiligo, starting support groups for patients as well.
As that continues, we the Patient leaders are working from our different regions and countries to bring support groups together for more impact and for recognition due Vitiligo from the medical/health community. Truly, so much of what we Patient leaders desire cannot happen until we work for it.
