Executive Summary:

Today, over 2 million children are marginalized by the devastating consequences of a severe yet preventable disability. Known as clubfoot, it affects 175,000 babies every year, but only 20% of children in low-income countries receive the treatment routinely provided at birth elsewhere. This solvable problem—a root cause of poverty—has fallen through the cracks of global development. A $500 solution changes the course of a child’s life forever, yet no one is funding it at scale. $100 million will mobilize an unprecedented effort to end this historically neglected issue. Over 5 years, we will build national treatment systems in 11 of the highest-need countries, addressing 50% of the world’s clubfoot problem. By creating local capacity in these countries to prevent this extreme disability for years to come and designing a roadmap for other countries to follow, millions of children will have the opportunity to achieve their dreams through lasting mobility.
