AbstractWe have an ongoing struggle that tends to be unique to South Africa. Most likely, it reflects the constant quest of medical insurers to try and limit coverage of their plans to hospital-related events primarily, and to preventive medicine outside of these hospital events. While this is understandable from a cost-containment perspective, and while we all recognise that there is a limited pool of funds available for a massive volume of patients, wound care has fallen casualty to this philosophy for many years.
