Look deeper – I am more than my skin
Zavod Atopika launched the first national media campaign on atopic dermatitis in Slovenia. The project “Look deeper – I am more than my skin“ allowed the Slovenian-Norwegian partners to achieve greater public awareness and initiate much-needed changes in support of people with atopic dermatitis. The campaign was led and implemented by the non-governmental organization Zavod Atopika, University Clinical Center Maribor, Norwegian partner University Hospital of Northern Norway, and GAAPP – Global Allergy & Airways Patient Platform. The goal of the campaign is to raise awareness of atopic dermatitis, empower patients and initiate systemic changes. The results of a comprehensive national survey were included in the campaign.
Here is a highlight of the results from people with a moderate or severe form of atopic dermatitis who responded to the questionnaire:
