Our free World Vitiligo Map is a global directory that provides you with information on vitiligo research centers, patient support groups and healthcare providers experienced in treating vitiligo.
We strive to keep this global directory as accurate as possible. Still, it may not contain information about all vitiligo support groups, health care providers and researchers, so please let us know if we have missed someone out.
Vitiligo Research Foundation (VRF) offers this specialist directory service - the World Vitiligo Map - to help patients find doctors in their area who treat vitiligo. In general, the medical professionals who appear in our directory are not affiliated with the VRF. This map does not represent an endorsement by or a recommendation from VRF, nor does it represent an endorsement by the doctor of VRF or any of its activities.
This is a free service: no fees have been received by or paid to doctors for participation in this map.
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
