World Vitiligo Day 2015 in Kazakhstan
Celebrations at 'Vitiligo School' in Shymkent (Kazakhstan) was organized by Dr. Aliya Kassumkhanova, MD, and colleagues from the Regional Dermatovenereology Hospital.
Another World Vitiligo Day event was organized in Almaty by 'SOS Center of Dermatocosmetology' and State Institute of Continuous Medical Education that included lectures, demos and discussions. A new data on vitiligo prevalence and Quality of Life of Vitiligo patients in Kazakhstan was presented by Dr. Asel Markabaeva.
Thanks to specialists and enthusiasts supported by the regional healthcare system, Kazakhstan has become a leading center for vitiligo research, treatment, education and patient support in the Central Asia and CIS countries.
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
