Welcome to the 11th issue of the Wounds Middle East (WME) journal. We hope you like our new cover design and share our opinion that its looking fresh, modern and exciting. We combined the WME journal with its sister journal, the Diabetic Foot Journal Middle East (DFJME), to bring you the latest in the world of wound and diabetic foot care in one format. Wound care and the diabetic foot are closely related and it is useful for Middle East health professionals in these fields to keep up to date about clinical and policy aspects in both these areas. The journal is still growing and evolving, and we welcome all healthcare professionals who want to contribute to the journal, so we can bring you the most topical, practical and relevant content possible. Please send your submissions to Edda Hendry ([email protected]).
