The International League of Dermatological Societies (ILDS), founded in 1935, includes 95 national associations from 72 different countries and 22 affiliated international - often thematic - societies. The general assembly of the ILDS takes place during the World Congress of Dermatology. The International Committee of Dermatology, the governing body of the ILDS, has 18 members who meet every year. The ILDS sponsors and organizes the World Congress of Dermatology every four years. Its goals include improving cooperation among dermatological societies, encouraging education, care and science in dermatology, promotion of personal and professional relations among dermatologists and representation in international health organizations. Beyond these primary goals, the ILDS created in 1987 the International Foundation for Dermatology (IFD), with the primary aim of improving dermatological care in developing countries. This mission is realized through the creation of Regional Dermatological Training Centers, the first of which was established in Moshi, Tanzania. An important part of the benefits of the World Congress of Dermatology is the contribution to the funding of these activities.
