Abstract [en]

Skin diseases are among the most common health problems in humans. Considering their significant impact on the individual, the family, the social life of patients, and their heavy economical burden, the public health importance of these diseases is underappreciated. This article discusses the importance of dermatologic public health and makes recommendations for better addressing this neglected topic.
