The Patient Society Village (also called Patient Village) is an area reserved within our Congresses for patient organisation representatives to meet with delegates and other patient organisation representatives to discuss relevant topics and issues pertaining to their organisation’s missions, goals and achievements. Launched in 2015 during the Annual Congress in Copenhagen and continued in 2016 in Vienna, the EADV is evolving and growing the Patient Village concept for the 2017 Congress in Geneva.

In Geneva, we are taking our previous years’ experience to grow on the strength of our experience.

The Patient Society Village will take place on Friday, 15 September 2017. This year it will take place for just one day. The purpose of this is to diminish the travel expenses for our Patient Associations, while maximising the opportunity for interactions with delegates.

  • Scheduled on a very well-attended day of the Congress
  • Located in a high-traffic are outside of the biggest session rooms
  • Offering coffee breaks in the Patient Society Village for congress delegates


Patient Village 2016


To improve the dermatological health paradigm, there must be a fundamental collaborative partnership between the patient and the key healthcare providers.

The European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) actively works to advance this theme with the patient community and strengthen productive relationships with patient leaders to explore how different roles and perspectives can be joined together to extend dermatological support.


Beware of scams

Please beware of scam companies pretending to offer accommodation and registration to the EADV Congress (adding a percentage of commissions)!
