World Map

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.

In general, the medical professionals who appear in our directory are not affiliated with the Vitiligo Research Foundation. This is a free service: no fees have been received by or paid to doctors for participation in this map. This 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.
