This event marked an important date in the history of dermatology in Kazakhstan. 90 years ago, a new dermatovenereological clinic opened it's doors to inhabitants of Shymkent and local tribes in the south of the country. As years passed by, it grew into a modern hospital with 305 beds and a team of recognized specialists. It has also become a leading center of research and care for vitiligo in Central Asia.

Batpenova, Margulan M. Shakirov, Seitzhamal O. Pakeev and Gulmira B. Nurmagambetova. Over 150 specialists from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan attended presentations and specialized workshops. 

The Master Class program was geared towards building practical skills in modern vitiligo treatment techniques. Lectures of the basics of vitiligo treatments and and results of most recent clinical trials were given by Yan Valle and Igor Korobko. Dr. Aliya A. Kassumkhanova led the hands-on demonstrations and live surgical procedures.
