Thank you to our 2021 IFD Supporters

8 December 2021

The work of the International Foundation for Dermatology (IFD) plays an important part in achieving the ILDS’ vision of attaining the best possible skin health for all people around the world.

This would not be possible without the generous support of our Members. We would like to extend our sincere thanks and acknowledge your important contributions in 2021*.

In addition to ILDS Members, we received donations from several non-Member organisations and individuals who are CSH Friends (supporting our Journal), these include the Noah Worcester Dermatological Society, the Primary Care Surgical Association of Ireland and the SSDV Foundation for International Dermatology and Venereology.

In 2021 these donations helped us support the following activities:

  • The Regional Dermatology Training Centre (RDTC) scholarships programme and the day to day running of the Centre, including the redevelopment and expansion of the RDTC library
  • ILDS DermLink 2021
  • The Community Skin Health Journal; translated into 4 languages and over 10,000 copies of Volumes 16(1) and 16(2) were distributed to healthcare workers globally
  • Supporting the delivery of programmatic and educational activities for the NNN, GLODERM and Migrant Health networks.
  • Supporting the delivery of events and educational webinars and the development of a mentorship programme for the International Alliance for Global Health Dermatology (GLODERM)

Donations, of all sizes, make a significant difference to the work that the IFD can support and to the improvement of skin health for people in resource-poor settings around the world.
