History of the association



The Maltese Association of Dermatology and Venereology (MADV) was founded in 1994 with Dr Joe Pace as President and Dr Lawrence Scerri and Dr Michael Boffa as Vice Presidents. The first treasurer was Dr George DePasquale.


In spite of its youth, or perhaps with the vitality of youth, it proved to be a great defender of patient rights, having been successful in obtaining free medication for patients with certain chronic skin problems, and reduction of import duty on sun blocks of SPF>15 so that they would be considered medicinal rather than cosmetics.


The MADV has striven for the formation of a specialist register to safeguard the quality of dermatological care and endorses strongly the concept of compulsory continuing education.


It participates actively in Melanoma Monday activities, AIDS related education and other fora related to the speciality.


Dr Joseph Pace has had a seat on the Board of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) for the past 5 years, and MADV made a successful bid for the first ever International EADV Spring Symposium.


The MADV looks to the future with confidence, boosted by the quality of its members and the knowledge that a generation of young physicians is ready to take the speciality to new heights.
