Every year in Mauritius, nearly 500 amputations are due to diabetes.
85% of foot amputations could have been prevented through education, upstream foot check-up, and appropriate preventive care.
Created in 2009, APSA’s Foot Care Clinic has specialized & dedicated staff, trained by doctors who take care of the diabetic foot so as to avoid complications by offering a panel of appropriate care namely

  • foot assessments
  • preventive care for corns
  • calluses & nails
  • wound care

The Foot Care Clinic is fully registered with the Ministry of Health.
