The 1st WAIOT General Assembly in Cape Town, South Africa
Welcome address of the WAIOT President, Prof. Guenter Lob:
"Dear Colleagues, it is a great pleasure for me to welcome you at the World Association against Infection in Orthopaedics and Trauma.
Bone and joint, implant- and biofilm-related infections have a tremendous, although often understimated, impact in all Countries.
Only a shared knowledge and a joined educational effort may allow us to improve the management of these challenging conditions at all levels.
WAIOT gives us the opportunity to build something that will remain and will survive us.
WAIOT gives us the chance to change the reality and to make things better for today and for tomorrow.
So, let's start working !"
