Welcome to Vitiligoforbundet – the Swedish society for Vitiligo.
Vitiligo – patchy loss of pigment cells in the outer skin which affects more than 1% of the population. The disease can occur at any age, even if onset usually occurs in adolescence. This is not a disease that shortens life but it can cause difficult psychological suffering and provide significantly impaired quality of life.
Pigmentation disorders has not been a high priority in Swedish medical care and research. It is difficult to find suitable financing for development in this area. We must jointly take responsibility and participate in the work if change is to take place.
To allow for more hopeful future in research and development of new and improved treatment it is of utmost importance to create a strong association with as many members as possible.
We want everyone with vitiligo to be able to live a good life. Through the association, we can disseminate information in the first place to people who suffers of vitiligo but also to health care, the general public and decision-makers. We are confident that we, through our existence, can perform an important social function and contribute to a sense of community among people who have vitiligo and their relatives.
Hope to see you all as members!
