Who is eligible?
Organizations/Projects that have made a significant contribution to improve the skin health of communities. Nominations for the award will be solicited from the ISD membership and the Board of Directors. Preference will be given to organizations/projects with active ISD member involvement and those that focus on skin health in resource poor settings.
How are they selected?
The potential candidates will be reviewed by the Community Dermatology Committee and then the recommendations will be forwarded to the Executive Committee for final approval.
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

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.
