World Scleroderma Day 2016


Hand in Hand for a better future

It is characterized by hardening of the skin and in severe cases also affects internal organs. 2.5 million individuals world wide are diagnosed with scleroderma for which there is no cure. We call for explicit plans by governments and health policy makers at National and European level to improve the livelihood of people with scleroderma.
