New Delhi, 4th May: – India’s largest organization of dermatologists ‘The Indian Association of Dermatologists, Venereologists, and Leprologists (IADVL) is poised to create history with its Guinness World Record endeavor, aiming to garner the Most Pledges for a Dermatological Disease Awareness Campaign in 24 Hours. Scheduled for May 5-6, 2024. This event underscores our steadfast dedication to elevating awareness about dermatological diseases.’

 Dr Gulhima Arora, President, IADVL DELHI says, In an age rife with misinformation and amateur advice, the significance of NMC-qualified dermatologists has been of paramount importance. Through this event, the organization aims to shed light on the complexities of dermatological conditions and the critical role of qualified professionals in their diagnosis and treatment. ‘A concerning lack of awareness persists regarding the grave threat to the nation’s health posed by unlicensed medical practitioners. Over the past few decades, the proliferation of such practices has surged, leading to detrimental and unrecognized outcomes in various medical procedures, particularly in dermatological and cosmetology procedures. These unauthorized practices often result in severe complications and exacerbate untreated skin conditions, said Dr Himanshu Gupta, Secretary, IADVL Delhi. Our event serves as a platform to underscore the invaluable expertise NMC-qualified dermatologists bring to the table and the significance of seeking reliable medical advice.

 To gear up for the Guinness World Record attempt, IADVL has meticulously laid out preparations including, a dedicated Website crafted to streamline the pledging process for IADVL members, engagement of the Digital Forensics Team to meticulously audit online pledges, submission of proofs and documentation to solidify our integrity and pursuit that are approved by the Guinness world record standards.
