The Podiatry Association works with government and educational bodies to ensure that a quality Podiatric service is available when and where it is needed.
Committed to Advancing the Podiatric Profession
We’re committed to promoting foot health in South Africa and work hard to ensure that the Podiatry Profession and Registered Podiatrists are universally recognised as essential providers of foot and ankle care. To achieve our goals we believe in collaboration, leadership, integrity and excellence.
Our vision is to:

- ADVANCE the profession through effective clinical and socioeconomic studies that drives innovation in the field
- ADVOCATE for Registered Podiatrists to be able to practice to the full extent of their education and training, to improve timely patient access to specialised foot and ankle care
- DEVELOP future leaders and exceptional members through effective governance and ongoing support
