How are they selected? The potential candidates will be identified by the Community Dermatology Committee and then reviewed by a panel appointed by the ISD President.  The panel will adjudicate over the selection of candidate and make their recommendations to the ISD Board of Directors.

What are the criteria?

In recommending recipients of the award the panel will take into consideration:

  1. Evidence of a long term commitment to the work
  2. A strategy with clear goals
  3. Evidence of achievement of objectives
  4. Local sustainability

The candidates can be drawn from any global region and will be selected on the basis of their work on the improvement of skin health in community settings. These initiatives may be based in resource poor environments but also in advanced health care settings, the key measure being the development of public health based approach to skin care in the wider population though clinical activities, research or teaching, i.e. improving the health of the community.
