The global Wound Care problem is escalating. It is estimated that there are over 400 million wounds that need care every year, including;
The WHO and UN issued a warning statement on the world’s health in September 2011. In this they identified Non-Communicable Diseases, including Diabetes and Cardiovascular disease (two of the main causes of non-healing wounds) as “The Major Health Threat” globally. (The last time such a statement was issued was for the AIDS epidemic).
In the U.S. alone wound care is a US$22 billion problem.

Most people who have a wound assume their health care provider will know how to best heal their wound; unfortunately in many cases that is not true. Health care professionals receive minimal training and education in wound care during their formal education process, so they often rely on “learning on the job”. This leads to less than adequate care and poor use of the research evidence we have for how to best heal wounds. In developing countries this lack of knowledge is more severe.
