The Wound Healing Association of Southern Africa (WHASA) is a multidisciplinary organization incorporating a team approach towards wound healing.
Membership is open to healthcare professionals and care givers that are registered with a recognized council.
The benefits of belonging to a professional body like WHASA are not always evident, as prospective members often do not realize the range of activities and issues that the Association manages, such as:
Speaks as the collective voice for wound care
Protects the boundaries of the speciality
Engages with public and private stakeholders
Raises the standards of wound care
Provides access to continuous professional development
