The International Society of Atopic Dermatitis (AD) collaborates to the new WHO strategic program which integrates noncommunicable skin diseases to skin NTDs. Among the deliverables, a course on AD on black skin for community health care workers in sub-Saharan Africa has been developed, and should be online by the end of 2023. This course will be tested on a sample of the target audience in 2024. This presentation summarizes the specific difficulties encountered during the design and implementation of this project.
