The re-ignition of the South African Burn Society

  • Nikki Allorto Edendale Hospital Burn Service


The South African Burn Society (SABS) is dedicated to the prevention of burn injuries, the promotion of comprehensive burn care and the development of research in the field. We are responsible for setting and maintaining the highest clinical and ethical standards. This is achieved by developing best clinical guidelines, both with regard to practical application and advice for policy-makers and funders. Further regular meetings and congresses at which to exchange knowledge and ideas and to foster professional relations with other societies and paramedical fields facilitates this.
