Welcome to AIIDA - Stop Xeesal

Let's Value the Color Of Our Skin

The International Association for Information on Artificial Depigmentation. AIIDA is a non-profit, apolitical organization.

WE CAN HELP YOU

The practice of artificial depigmentation of the skin, called xeesal in Senegal, is very common in the world.
Unfortunately, this practice causes health problems such as irreversible skin damage, cancer, and liver or kidney failure.

AIIDA will help you quit...

"Xeesal has become a public health priority because of its frequency, its medical complications, and the resulting economic costs."
