STEPS is working with sponsors, doctors and parents towards a clear vision - The eradication of clubfoot as a disability in Southern Africa.
The Ponseti Method of clubfoot treatment is the effective solution to prevent the disability caused by neglected clubfoot.
Our goal is for every child born with clubfoot to have access to the Ponseti Method.
SAPOS (SA Paediatric Orthopaedic Society) endorse the Ponseti Method as best practice for clubfoot treatment.
Our objective to ensure that every child born with clubfoot in Southern Africa has:
- Early and effective treatment by the best current practice
- Access to care by a provider trained in the Ponseti Method at a dedicated clubfoot clinic
Our four pillar model targets impact areas through the following activities:
1. Training of medical professionals
2. Clubfoot clinic support
3. Clubfoot brace distribution
4. Advocacy and awareness
