As I step into the new Biennium 2021-2023 as President of the D-Foot International, I feel the immense responsibility that lies on my shoulders.
D-Foot International is a truly global organisation with members from 7 regions of the world :
Africa (AFR), Europe (EUR), Midde East and North Africa( MENA), North America and the Caribbean (NAC), South and Central America (SACA), South East Asia (SEA) and the Western Pacific regions.
I will strive to create a link among the regions so that we work together to achieve our mission of "Ending avoidable lower-limb amputations due to diabetes worldwide".
Thanks to the wonderful Board during the previous biennium 2019-2021, under the leadership of the President, José Luis Lázaro Martínez, several projects were taken up, like the Train-the-Foot-Trainer programme in Abu Dhabi in 2020 , the Diabetic Foot Awareness Week from November 8-14 2020 and the launch of several Info Cards in collaboration with the International Working Group on Diabetic Foot (IWGDF Guidelines).
I take up this post of President of D Foot International for the biennium 2021 to 2023, with optimism and a positive frame of mind.
With kind regards
