About NDA

The Nordic Dermatology Association (NDA) was founded in 1910 and recently celebrated its 100th anniversary. The recollection of 33 Nordic congresses and topics being discussed shows that Nordic dermatology stands on a very solid fundament with a common panorama of skin diseases (100th Anniversary of NDA / Review of the Nordic dermatology Congresses 1986-2008). In order to create equal health care for our patients, we need strong dermatologic societies to ensure that as many patients as possible will receive adequate care. We believe that every national dermatologic society will become more influential with support from the neighbouring Nordic countries.

After the Nordic Congress of Dermatology and Venereology in Tampere in 2013, the NDA board has gathered twice yearly. At the Nordic Congress of Dermatology and Venereology in Trondheim in 2016, the NDA became an association of the five national societies instead of an organisation of all members of the Nordic dermatological societies. Please, see previous newsletters to see how we got there (NDA Newsletters). A statutes committee was founded to propose new bylaws. According to the new statutes, the NDA board will include 14 members and these were elected and presented at the General Assembly of the 33rd Nordic of Dermatology and Venereology in Trondheim.

A new initiative of the NDA is the development of new Nordic courses, which contribute to increasing communication and cooperation between young Nordic dermatologists (www.nordicdermatologycourses.org). We have recently established our Main Office in Uppsala, Sweden, which is administered by Agneta Andersson, who is also the Editor of our official journal, Forum for Nordic Dermato-Venereology. In Forum, you will find reports on the latest dermatologic dissertations, information regarding recent publications from Nordic dermatologists and glimpses of the daily life of Nordic dermatologists (Forum).

Every three years, the NDA organises a Nordic Congress of Dermatology and Venereology. The next congress will take place on May 8-10, 2019 in Gothenburg, Sweden with Assoc. Prof. John Paoli as the Congress President. Please see the congress website at www.nordicderm2019.com.
