Our History

Our Founders

The Global Vitiligo Foundation (GVF), as we know it today, was originally the Vitiligo Working Group, a committee of the Skin of Color Society (SOCS). The Global Vitiligo Foundation was formally established in 2011 by Henry Ford Hospital physicians, Drs. Henry W. Lim and Iltefat Hamzavi, but was only incorporated in 2016. Drs. Lim and Hamzavi continue to lead the organization today with associated physicians and people with vitiligo.
