Pakistan Association of Dermatologists (PAD)

History of Dermatology in Pakistan.

Pakistan emerged as a sovereign country on world map on 14th August, 1947. Like all walks of life, there was acute shortage of medical and health facilities in the new born state. The majority of specialist doctors and teachers were Hindus and had left for India. There were only two medical colleges, King Edward Medical College and Lahore and Dow Medical College, Karachi, with no postgraduate medical institute in the whole country. Although, venereology out-patient clinics were run in the major hospitals, there was not a single qualified dermatologist at that time. Five to six lectures covering the common dermatological diseases were delivered by the internists. It can be said that dermatology, as a specialty, virtually started from scratch.

Our Vision.

The Pakistan Association of Dermatologists (PAD) was founded in January, 1979. The idea for a body to represent Dermatologists of the Country was conceived for the simple reason that none existed. The vision conceived by Dr. Nusrat Ali Shaikh, Dr. Syed Ghulam Shabbir, Dr. Tahir Saeed Haroon, Dr. Aleem Saeed Qureshi and Dr. Zarina Fazalbhoy, 25 years ago is now an established reality.

Our Mission.

The Constitution was drafted by Dr. Tahir Saeed Haroon and Dr. Aleem Saeed Qureshi. Objectives of this Forum were to provide a platform to the Dermatologists of the Country to meet their colleagues and contemporaries from allied disciplines, to hold regular meetings to promote the cause of Dermatology, encourage research and presentation of scientific papers allied to Dermatology, to improve patient care, to promote teaching of Dermatology at both Undergraduates & Postgraduates level and to formulate policies on matters related to Dermatology in Pakistan in association with the Government authorities.
