Helping people with diabetes prevent the sort of complications with the lower limb that can lead to ulceration and ultimately amputation
That by 2035 the rate of amputations globally will be reduced from the current rate of 1 every 20 secs to 1 every minute
The big picture for undefeeted is to have a global impact by raising awareness at all levels from individual people, families, communities, health organizations, industry, governments and international organizations.
We believe that it is only by interacting and influencing at each of these levels will it be possible to have the impact that is our vision. We will interact on an individual basis and with families through the online resources and the book, with communities via sweet spot groups and workshops and in countries less fortunate than ourselves by training diabetic foot overseers as leaders in their local community with basic but critical footcare skills. With health orgnisations to work towards a system where everyone can have a proper podiatric assessment irrespective of whether they can afford it, where that assessment is done in a uniform way and is available to others involved in the persons care.
We will interact with industries such as the fitness, food and pharmaceutical with the goal of making good blood sugar control easier to achieve. We will lobby government regarding labeling of foods with easily recognized and understood warnings on. We will tirelessly embark on educational campaigns both locally and further afield. On an international level we will endeavour to secure resources for those countries where funds are lacking and the problem intensifying.
