Our Work

In order that each of the nearly 200,000 babies born with clubfoot each year has access to quality treatment, the world needs 4,000 Ponseti practitioners actively treating patients. We are engaged in building the capacity to treat clubfoot, in large part through properly training health care providers throughout the world. You can help make a difference in this crucial international public health initiative.
Training an adequate number of healthcare practitioners who can provide treatment of clubfoot in accordance with the Ponseti Method is the primary responsibility of the Ponseti International Association. Assuming an average incidence of one child born with clubfoot in every 1,000 live births, there are approximately 200,000 new clubfoot cases each year worldwide.
