Atopic Dermatitis Caregivers Academy
World Eczema Day is 14 September 2022! GAAPP has launched the Atopic Dermatitis Caregivers Academy, a series of videos and capacity-building tools and resources to educate caregivers and family members who face a recent Atopic Dermatitis diagnosis.
GAAPP has partnered with caregivers, patient advocates, and experts to deliver these short videos that cover the most important aspects of being a caregiver of a person living with Eczema. We hope these videos provide guidance to caregivers worldwide and help to provide vitally needed information on how to face a new Eczema diagnosis with your loved ones.
The topics have been chosen based on the testimonials collected during our 2021 World Atopic Eczema Day Campaign: https://gaapp.org/waed2021/.
