The World Scleroderma Foundation is a non profit, non-governmental foundation based in Switzerland, which functions as a research organization in favour of patients suffering from scleroderma.
The World Scleroderma Foundation is dedicated to initiating and supporting research in scleroderma in all its aspects in all regions of our planet. Our commitment is to facilitate patient oriented research independently but also in collaboration with existing other organisations and learned societies working in this field. Support is in the form of project grants, expert advisory panels and knowledge dissemination platforms. Patient groups as well as allied health professionals will be an integral part of the WSF structure. WSF will liason with society, industry and government in an open and dynamic fashion which nonetheless remains independent of regional, political or industrial pressures. The WSF is committed to improving the quality of life for scleroderma sufferers and their families.
