Every 20 seconds somewhere in the world someone loses a leg due to the complications of diabetes. At this moment, millions of people with diabetes suffer from poorly healing foot ulcers. These people can be helped when a multidisciplinary foot team shares common goals and follows evidence-based care.

The International Working Group on the Diabetic Foot (IWGDF) produces international, multidisciplinary, evidence-based Guidance documents to inform health professionals all over the world on the prevention and management of diabetic foot disease.
