AIM

To increase the capacity of health workers (involving a range of cadres: surgeons, physios, and clinical officers) in surgical management of delayed presenting clubfoot in walking children, in the underserved population in Ethiopia. To do this, the project will develop and pilot a one-day training course and materials, train and mentor new trainers, and then roll-out the training course. The project aims to strengthen the workforce, improve surgical capacity, and improve both national and regional surgical training capacity for children with clubfoot and with clubfoot care for older children.
