Following 18 months of dialogue and consultations, the Global Dermatology Coalition was established during a meeting of its Founding Partners in January 2022. The Coalition is an informal multi-stakeholder collaboration among independent organizations, societies, groups, networks, institutions and companies.
The focus of these like-minded organizations is raising awareness of the impact of dermatological diseases and increasing the healthcare prioritization of these conditions. GlobalSkin is honoured to have been confirmed in the role of Coalition Secretariat during the founding meeting.
At this time there are 20 Partners with more eligible partners being invited to join the Coalition to expand its membership. The Coalition is currently in the early stages of formation and planning activities, and has elected a steering committee. GlobalSkin along with other patient organization partners look forward to working with health care professional societies, researcher societies, derm nurses and industry partners to create momentum around this exciting venture.
More information will be shared about the Coalition in the coming months, as we look to formally and publicly launch this very exciting dermatology multi-stakeholder coalition in May 2022.
