The Nigerian Association of Dermatologists

The Nigerian Association Of Dermatologists

The Nigerian Association of Dermatologists (NAD) is the national body of Dermatologists in Nigeria. The association was inaugurated in 1979 by a few Nigerian dermatologists who had their specialist training abroad.

With two postgraduate institutions in the country, the National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria and the West African College of Physicians offering specialist training in dermatology, the number of dermatologists has increased to 80 in 2015.

The NAD is a non-governmental professional organization with local and international collaborations which is funded by the financial obligations of the members and activities of the association.

The association is committed to promoting continuing professional development for dermatologists in order to improve the practice of Dermatology and Venereology in Nigeria.

The NAD assists government in formulation of policies that will enhance the health of Nigerians.
The NAD also provides continuing medical education in dermatology for various health care workers.
NAD is actively involved in promoting public awareness on matters of skin health.
It acts as an advocacy group for Nigerians with skin disorders associated with stigmatization.
