Supporting Societies

WUWHS supporting societies are national, supranational and international wound associations who are sharing information about the WUWHS Congress. That includes actions to promote the Congress through their own internal channels; encourage their members to attend and distribute the call for abstracts and posters. In exchange WUWHS provides visibility on the charts,  the web site and all other activities associated  with the WUWHS Congress.

Scientific associations have to be legally established, non-profit making, have their purpose as scientific research, training and/or divulgation in relation to wound phenomena entailing tissue repair in the broadest sense of the term.Their dimension have to be national, supranational or international with a statute of governance that guarantees the internal application of the principles of democracy.
