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 !"

Professor Heinz Winkler welcomed the presence of all those who have supported the development of WAIOT so far and those who are showing interest in the association.

He then gave brief account of how the idea of WORLD ASSOCIATION AGAINST INFECTION IN ORTHOPAEDIC AND TRAUMA (WAIOT), developed after the SICOT Declaration on Bone and Joint Infection in Rio and the invitation of the eight founding members to meet in Vienna during the EFORT 2017, which led to the submission and registration of WAIOT.

Professor Carlo L. Romanò gave a presentation about WAIOT and its vision, mission.

He stressed on the new vision we are proposing with a web based, free association with two main concerns, i.e. scientific and humanitarian.
