The National Eczema Association (NEA) is a non-profit organization founded in 1988 to improve the health and quality of life for individuals with eczema through research, support, and education.
Eczema affects more than 30 million individuals and adults in the US. Atopic dermatitis is the most common and chronic form of eczema, and impacts up to 10% of the U.S. population. There is currently no cure for eczema or atopic dermatitis.
In 2015, NEA adopted a 3-year strategic plan, the Roadmap to Advocacy, dedicated to raising awareness about the burden eczema has on individuals and families. Bringing a greater understanding of the seriousness of eczema will allow NEA more effectively advance investments in research, new treatments, and access to better patient-centered care. The five transformational keys advancing the Roadmap to Advocacy are:
NEA is governed by a Board of Directors and guided by a Scientific Advisory Committee that is comprised of physicians and scientists who donate their time and expertise. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, NEA is funded through individual donations, fee for service programs, and corporate contributions.
