World Atopic Eczema Day – September 14, 2021

Logo Transparent





Atopic eczema is an allergic skin disease that sits at the center of other health issues; it impacts mental health and leads to the development of other diseases. The disease is incredibly difficult for patients and their families, seriously impacting daily life. Whether you live with atopic eczema, care for someone with the condition, or are already actively involved with a patient association, your voice is important!

World Atopic Eczema Day was launched in 2018 to raise awareness about the disease globally and across Europe through an initiative coordinated by GlobalSkin and the European Federation of Allergy and Airways Diseases Patients’ Associations (EFA).

World Atopic Eczema Day Fund

GlobalSkin created the World Atopic Eczema Day Fund to financially assist Member organizations in the planning and implementation of activities supporting this important day. In 2020, GlobalSkin awarded grants to 16 Member organizations for their world Atopic Eczema Day awareness day projects.We are pleased to offer this grant opportunity for the third year in a row.

This year, we have now approved applications that fully demonstrated how their Member organizations will use theirgrant funds to raise awareness of the disease and/or build community during World Atopic Eczema Day. 

We are proud to announce that GlobalSkin is supporting 20 successful applicantsrepresenting 14 countries, with the 2021 World Atopic Eczema Day Fund.

World Atopic Eczema Day 2021 Campaign

Atopic eczema is one of the most prevalent skin diseases in the world and one of the most under-recognized. Atopic eczema is often dismissed as “just a skin condition,” and patients’ needs are not addressed in a supportive and timely manner.

The Atopic Eczema Community comes together on September 14th to raise awareness for the disease, to speak up about the burden it has on patients and caregivers, and to recognize the need for care and treatment that is reflective of the multi-dimensional nature of the disease.

Need the basics to run an awareness campaign? Download our Atopic Eczema Campaign Guide Here. 

We call on healthcare professionals, health policy decision-makers, and all stakeholders to unite with the atopic eczema patient community on this awareness day.

On World Atopic Eczema Day 2021, we Unite for Atopic Eczema. #UniteForAtopicEczema #AtopicEczemaDay
