We are the peak national clinical and research body for diabetes-related foot health and disease

Diabetes Feet Australia (DFA) was established in 2015 as a key initiative of the Wound Management Innovation CRC, with the goal of ending avoidable amputations within a generation in Australia. On the 1st July 2018, we joined the Australian Diabetes Society’s (ADS) as a division. And in December 2020, we took the important step of re-branding the organisation from Diabetic Foot Australia to Diabetes Feet Australia.

DFA is the peak national clinical and research body for diabetes-related foot health and disease. Led by a national steering committee, our committee is comprised of a broad range of clinical, research and industry experts from disciplines including endocrinology, vascular surgery, podiatry, nursing, epidemiology, infectious diseases, and clinical research. Members also bring a wealth of experience by being representatives on international, national and state diabetic foot groups, including the ‘International Working Group on the Diabetic Foot’ and former national diabetic foot ulcer group the ‘Australian Diabetic Foot Network’.
