About IEC

Founded in 2014 by Drs. Amy Paller and Emma Guttman, the International Eczema Council (IEC) is a global nonprofit organization led by dermatology and allergy experts on atopic dermatitis. The IEC is dedicated to improving patient care by promoting research, education, and best practices in treatment for atopic dermatitis in people worldwide.

The IEC is governed by a Board of Directors, comprised primarily of leading international experts in atopic dermatitis. The Board includes a layperson that is an atopic dermatitis patient. Additionally, atopic dermatitis experts from around the globe serve in an advisory role as Councilors and Associates of the IEC. With 133 Councilors and Associates from 31 countries joined together already, this group continues to grow. An infographic is available illustrating the global representation of IEC Councilors and Associates, who come from 31 countries across 6 regions. Councilors and Associates contribute their expertise to support the IEC’s research, programs, events and education. 

IEC Strategic Plan

At the end of 2023, the IEC developed a new strategic plan. This in-depth process involved IEC leadership, Councilors, Associates and Industry Partners as we sought input through surveys and other methods.
