Saving Diabetic Feet in Africa: Cape Town Action Declaration 2016

  • Editorial Office Medpharm Publications

Abstract

Diabetes is the major cause of lower limb amputations in the world. Africa has the highest percentage of undiagnosed diabetes worldwide. Persons with diabetes in Africa also have the lowest chance of high risk diabetic foot screening. Undetected diabetic foot complications, including preventable loss of limbs and lives,2 are due to the lack of gold standard care.
