About the Summit

The ILDS World Skin Summit is a special and unique global event for the leaders of ILDS Members. The goal is to work together towards a vision of attaining the best possible skin health for all people around the world. The Summit provides a forum for sharing and discussion, enabling leaders in dermatology to consider and develop strategies to improve skin health at local, national, regional and global levels. The ILDS’ growing membership of 195 organisations from over 80 countries is represented at the Summit by their Presidents and Officers, thereby bringing together highly influential experts from the world of dermatology. Collectively they represent the geographical diversity of ILDS’ membership. Through an interactive programme with plenary and workshop sessions and social activities the Summit:

  • Identifies challenges and develops skills and knowledge to tackle challenges in different country and/or disease areas

  • Offers fellow dermatology leaders the opportunity to share experiences and strengthen networks

  • Develops common strategies to improve global skin health

  • Shares the latest information about ILDS strategies, projects and collaborations and opportunities for engagement

This will be the third ILDS Summit. The first Summit was held in Germany in 2012, the second took place in Vietnam in 2018 and attracted over 120 delegates from ILDS Members. We look forward to welcoming you to Lima, Peru, in 2021.
