The Coalition of Skin Diseases
Working to improve the lives of 84 million Americans living with dermatological conditions
Why We Exist
As the largest consortium of skin disease patient advocacy organizations in the United States, the efforts of the Coalition of Skin Diseases (CSD) aim to ensure that all Americans living with dermatological diseases and skin traumas receive the care they need to live healthy and productive lives.
We Take Advocating
for Patients Seriously
The CSD works to improve the lives of over 84 million Americans living with dermatological conditions by supporting member organizations in developing, building, and enhancing their current advocacy initiatives. We are also the conduit through which our members speak with one voice to policy-makers and regulators about the debilitating nature of dermatological diseases and barriers to access, treatment, and research.
