Message from the Secretary General

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 12th South-Asian Regional Conference of Dermatology (SARCD XII 2023) to be held on 6th – 7th October 2023 at Galadari Hotel, Colombo, Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka College of Dermatologists (SLCD) is proud to organize the 12th SARCD, following the success of the 8th SARCD which was held in Colombo, exactly 10 years ago.

Our theme Skin Solidarity in Challenging Times emphasizes the importance of support among the member societies of the South-Asian Regional Association of Dermatology (SARAD) during the difficult times that the world endures. I hope this conference will further strengthen the long-lasting friendship among the regional dermatological associations.

The exciting scientific program features many eminent speakers from the region. In addition, experts in various aspects of dermatology around the globe will be sharing their knowledge and experience with the delegates.

I express my sincere gratitude to all the invited speakers and look forward to an academic event that generates novel ideas and great discussions on hot topics in dermatology.

Apart from the academic event, we have organized an inauguration ceremony and a colourful Sri Lankan cultural night which I hope you will enjoy.

I take this opportunity to thank the organizing committee for dedicating their valuable time and energy towards making this conference a success.

I wish all the participants a memorable stay in our beautiful country and a successful academic event!


Dr Kanchana Mallawaarachchi
