The World Skin Health Day is a collaborative initiative of the International League of Dermatological Societies (ILDS) and the International Society of Dermatology (ISD). The idea for the campaign came form Dr. Evangeline Handog at the ILDS Summit in 2012 in Berlin, Germany. The ISD leadership, led by her and Drs. Jean Bolognia and George Reizner, met with Prof. Wolfram Sterry to propose an activity which would engage ILDS Societies in a global campaign to increase awareness of skin health around the world.
