AbstractThis interesting issue of WHSA has been delayed somewhat by a few factors, the first being because of our attendance of the 5th World Union of Wound Healing Societies (WUWHS) meeting, held in Florence. We wanted to give our readers some feedback regarding this. There was a record attendance, in excess of 4 000 delegates, the largest number for this congress to date. Although we heard many interesting things, the most significant thing I noted was that our wound care in South Africa is of an extremely high standard, with our private sector being on par with most countries. Although there are many fantastic wound services in our state sector too, there are of course some challenges due to lack of resources and training.
