While there are several clinical practice guidelines for managing diabetic foot problems, none have yet been developed for ASEAN. The ASEAN Plus Expert Group Forum has been formed in November 2012 to address this issue. Its objective is to develop clinical guidelines to raise the standard of health care provided to patients with diabetic foot wounds in ASEAN Plus countries. Such best practices will benefit healthcare professionals treating such individuals.Two experts have been invited from each member country, namely Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Thailand to serve a term of 2 years. Members include orthopaedic surgeons, vascular surgeons, a general surgeon, a plastic surgeon and endocrinologists. We would like to thank Smith & Nephew Singapore Pte Ltd for their educational support and sponsorship.
