Description

The National Vitiligo Foundation is a voluntary, non-profit, self-help organization dedicated to providing information and support to individuals with vitiligo, a skin disorder in which pigment cells are destroyed, resulting in irregularly shaped white patches on the skin. Established in 1985, the foundation is committed to locating, informing, and counseling affected individuals and family members; increasing public awareness and concern for affected individuals; and promoting and funding scientific and clinical research into the cause, treatment, and cure of vitiligo. The foundation is interested in broadening the concern for people with vitiligo within the medical community and establishing a central vitiligo center and local treatment facilities across the country. In addition, the National Vitiligo Foundation promotes patient advocacy and legislation beneficial to affected individuals and engages in patient, professional, and community education. The foundation provides a variety of informational materials including a bi-annual newsletter, guidelines for physicians concerning the treatment of patients with vitiligo, fact sheets, pamphlets, and handbooks for patients, physicians, and schools.
