At the University of Oxford we have been developing clubfoot training materials for healthcare professionals in Africa, to strengthen care for children born with clubfoot. Working with CURE Clubfoot and Global Clubfoot Initiative, and over 70 clubfoot practitioners from the UK and 18 countries in Africa, we are excited to be in the final stages of producing an instructor training course, a Basic Clubfoot Treatment Provider course (using the Ponseti method), and an Advanced Non-Surgical Clubfoot Treatment Provider course.

We’ve piloted the materials in French and English, and during November 2016 we are raising funds to support further clubfoot training in Africa next year, and further translation.

We’d love to hear from colleagues interested in building up clubfoot services in Africa.
