D-FOOT International & 5th Global wound conference 2023

21 June 2023

Message from the Organising Chairman

Dear friends and family of the wound fraternity, It gives me immense pleasure to invite you to our international meeting, namely the D-Foot International and the 5th Global Wound Conference 2023, which will be held in the Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre from the 6th to the 8th of October 2023.

The theme of this momentous event is Wound Busters: The Legacy.

For this momentous meeting, I am so grateful that the Malaysian Society of Wound Care Professionals (MSWCP) will be collaborating with D-Foot International, which is the implementation arm of the International Working Group on Diabetic Foot (IWGDF).

Diabetes is now at epic proportions and has even become a pandemic. Globally, a diabetic person dies every 7 seconds, and a foot is amputated every 20 seconds. This is the reality, and we need to create a strong relationship in order to comprehensively manage diabetic foot complications holistically, with a multidisciplinary team approach. The D-Foot International aims to prevent avoidable amputations worldwide. The Save Lives, Save Limbs campaign globally has to be strengthened and implemented in every country with the help of the World Health Organisation (WHO), especially in lower and middle income countries.

Please lend us a hand for a good cause. Come join this international conference with a large group of speakers from various backgrounds and countries who will come together to share their knowledge, expertise, and experience to battle diabetic foot complications together in the spirit of brotherhood and sisterhood.

I hope to see you all soon. Please mark it on your calendar.

Take care. God bless.
Thank you.

Professor Dr. Harikrishna K. R. Nair DMIJ S.I.S. KMN
