International foundation for dermatology : a challenge to meet the dermatologic needs of developing countries.
The primary goal of the IFD, which serves under the aegis of the International Committee of Dermatology (the governing body of the International League of Dermatological Societies), is to improve dermatology and dermatologic care in rural areas and developing countries.
The principal mission of the IFD is to create regional dermatology training centers in geographic areas of greatest need.
The first such center, serving the 12 countries of the African Regional Health Community, is located in Moshi, Tanzania.
After successfully completing a 2-year course, the emerging dermatology officers will return to their countries of origin to promulgate the information they have learned by teaching others.
