CURE-Ethiopia Clubfoot Program (Ethiopia)


Overview

WDI worked with CURE-Ethiopia to identify areas of operation that needed improvement, such as procurement and manufacturing of the braces that used to treat clubfoot. The Institute also proposed changes in strategy and operations, including targeted investments, that would allow CURE to treat all patients born with clubfoot in Ethiopia. Since it was founded ten years ago, CURE-Ethiopia has only been able to treat about one quarter of the people born with the clubfoot in the country each year. A WDI team also developed recommendations for expanding the brace manufacturing operation within Ethiopia.
