FRT is pursuing its 
efforts to improve healthcare to patients affected by skin diseases, in particular those in developing countries, especially by its involvement in the following main actions
  • developing a collaborative network focusing on patient needs for rare skin diseases gathering some 100 teams across all European countries and preparing a European Reference Network on rare diseases in dermatology, in partnership with Mediterranean countries (Genodermatoses Network)
  • improving access to quality care for patients suffering from psoriasis through the Psoriasis International Network, which gathers some 4700 dermatologists and 40 patient associations across 100 countries
  • enhancing continuing medical education in dermatology, by developing and updating the online free reference book Therapeutics in Dermatology, an e-dermatology portal with over 13 000 registered health professionals and open to partnerships with pharmaceutical and cosmetical industries willing to support therapeutic progress in dermatology.
