This training provided a better understanding of the scientific arguments concerning the pathophysiology of vitiligo, in order to better counter the beliefs and certain ideas that try to equate depigmentation due to vitiligo with a fault, a sin or a curse. Professor Seneschal, as an expert in vitiligo, researcher, and dermatologist in one of the reference centers in France, was therefore able to explain: what vitiligo is, its etiology, the mechanisms at the origin of the disease, how to make a diagnosis, the treatments and the impacts of this blatant and stigmatizing disease. He spoke about advances and the latest scientific advances for new treatments.
According to the President of the AFCV (photo above), the training met the expectations of all clinicians. Interesting exchanges also took place after the training on the management of people with vitiligo. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, thanks to the remarkable actions of the AFCV, many media outlets continue to relay information about vitiligo: things are progressing at a remarkable speed!
