The ‘Skinapp’ is a smartphone app to support peripheral health workers in diagnosing and treating common, NTD and HIV related skin diseases. Skin diseases are highly prevalent while the availability of dermatologists is limited: 10 dermatologists on a population of 27 million people in Mozambique. Many public health centers are run by clinical officers or nurses who have very limited training in dermatology.

The Netherlands Leprosy Relief (NLR) developed the ‘Skinapp’ after field-​testing an adapted version of Mahé’s algorithm for diagnosis and treatment of common skin diseases, in Nigeria. A first version of the app was field tested in Zambezia Province in Mozambique, both in urban and rural districts. Findings and feedback have led to an improved version of the ‘Skinapp’ that can now be downloaded below and will be released in Play Store. In April, NLR will field test this improved version of the ‘Skinapp’ in Mozambique. The aim is to improve the quality of diagnosis and treatment of skin diseases and to enhance early detection of skin-​related NTDs as well as HIV related skin diseases.

We kindly invite you to use the feedback form to send us your comments and questions, and to let us know that you are interested to collaborate with NLR on further development of the Skinapp
