The World Union of Wound Healing Societies (WUWHS) aims to:
- Improve wound care standards for patients, health care professional performance and to facilitate universal access in all health care systems.
- Educate all health care professionals in interdisciplinary team approaches that deliver best practices for improved patient outcomes, and to disseminate the educational and training toolkits created in practical, relevant and adaptable formats to meet local needs.
- Appraise and to organize the evidence base to facilitate best practices to optimize patient care. To accomplish this mission requires either large-scale randomized clinical trials, or multi-centered prospective database accumulation efforts.
- Coordinate a worldwide exchange of information between wound societies and other relevant stakeholders, including international and global agencies as well as personal-level friendship exchanges.
