Why June 25th is suggested as World Vitiligo Day

Why is June 25th suggested as World Vitiligo Day?

June 25th is a significant date in the Vitiligo calendar because it marks the passing date of pop-star Michael Jackson, the most famous man that lived with Vitiligo. His life with Vitiligo brought awareness to Vitiligo as most people heard about Vitiligo for the first time as it concerns Michael Jackson and today some already refer to Vitiligo as Michael Jackson’s disease. His death attracted about 4millions hits on Vitiligo websites in a few days. Michael Jackson even in death is still being misunderstood about his change in skin color, a kind of misunderstanding majority with Vitiligo still face today.

In 2011, we inspired Vitiligo Awareness Day, June 25th (World Vitiligo Day) across the globe; it was marked in Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, USA, Indonesia, Vitiligo persons and the public on social media.
