GlobalSkin is a truly global alliance of patient organizations that serve people living with dermatological conditions or skin traumas. We represent over 35 countries and more than 36 disease areas worldwide – and growing.

Given that people living with these conditions face many of the same challenges and obstacles, by working together, member organizations hope and expect to:

  • Raise awareness of the true impact on individuals and families
  • Improve access to treatment and care locally and globally
  • Share best practices and tools to improve the ability of all members to meet their goals
  • Improve the quality of life for their members
