For those affected by clubfoot
Every year approximately 200.000 children are born with clubfoot worldwide
With proper Ponseti treatment the deformity can be corrected in up to 95% of cases, giving children the opportunity to live a normal and active life without limitations.
Unfortunately, up to 80% of them, most of them living in low- or middle income countries, do not have access to medical treatment at all. Those who do have access to medical treatment, mostly living in middle or high income countries, face another problem: method and quality of treatment differs greatly. This lack of access to high quality treatment leaves most of them disabled, facing huge challenges and limitations throughout their lives.
Every child with clubfoot deserves the best possible treatment and care, as well as social support for the whole family.
Using a crystal clear guideline for treatment of clubfoot to accomplish the Ponseti target of “no surgery for clubfeet” in every country.
