The mission of the International Working Group on the Diabetic Foot (IWGDF) is to produce evidence-based guidelines to inform healthcare providers all over the world on strategies for the prevention and management of diabetic foot disease.

International Federation of Podiatrists (FIP-IFP)
Advancing podiatry worldwide through education, advocacy and strategic alliances for the benefit of those with foot and ankle ailments.
In diabetic foot care and prevention, podiatry skills are crucial to help achieve a positive outcome. The podiatrist plays a central role not only in early ulcer referral but also in their specialist management. Additionally, they are uniquely placed to provide optimal primary and secondary care to people with diabetes whose feet are at risk.
D-Foot and FIP-IFP entered into a formal collaboration to enhance the profile of podiatry worldwide.
