Skin Health for Everyone. Everywhere.

GLODERM works to build connections between dermatologists, trainees, and healthcare professionals around the world.

We envision a world where every individual, regardless of background, has the opportunity to achieve skin health. Our mission is to promote skin health worldwide through enhanced access to care, training, advocacy, capacity building, clinical care, and research. We aim to raise awareness about skin health within the overall well-being of communities and to reduce the burden of both common and neglected skin diseases.
