World Skin Health Day which falls on July 8 is a global initiative by the International League of Dermatological Societies (ILDS) and the International Society of Dermatology (ISD) that aims to educate people about the significance of skin health.
It also advocates for equality around skin health access, encourages discussion and actions to improve skin health, and highlights the importance of skin health access to mental, physical, and emotional health.
What makes this day even more special is that this year 2024 is the first where World Skin Health Day is marked on a particular day, before now, countries would choose what day best suits them for the observance.
It also comes timely as skin health in our day is dire. According to the International Society of Dermatology, there are more than 3000 skin diseases affecting over 1.8 billion people globally.
Some countries even have less than 1 dermatologist per million population, increasing the reservoir of poorly treated patients.
To get an in-depth look at the significance of this day, we caught up with Dr. Folakemi Cole Adeife a consultant Dermatologist in Nigeria.
