"The time is now: new report calls for global action for children and adults with clubfoot"
News story credited to MiracleFeet.
A new report by the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) for AT2030 aims to drive progress for children and adults with clubfoot to reach their full potential.
The AT2030 report on impairment related to clubfoot is the first of its kind by a global development agency to specifically investigate the barriers to clubfoot treatment in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The report brought together some of the most knowledgeable stakeholders in the sector and includes a number of high-impact, evidence-based recommendations.
This report wasn’t supposed to be written. The researchers discovered so much evidence related to clubfoot when writing the Product Narrative for prosthetics that we collectively felt a duty to publish it, and of course, that makes the need for it self-evident. Children and adults with clubfoot should not be left behind.
