Welcome to World Skin Health Day | Guinea 2024 !

Skin disease is one of the most common human illnesses. According to the World Health Organization, over 900 million people are affected by skin diseases around the world at any time. Also, the WHO International Classification of Diseases 11th Revision (ICD-11) includes more than 2,000 skin or skin-related illnesses. World Skin Health Day is a joint project of the International League of Dermatological Societies (ILDS) and the International Society of Dermatology (ISD). Since 2013, World Skin Health Day has been taking place across the world to raise awareness of and treat a diverse range of skin conditions. Taking part in World Skin Health Day helps to raise awareness about the wide-ranging impact of skin disease, as well as supporting people needing treatment in their local communities.
