Prosthetics and Orthotics

Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Over 4,000 people have had amputations as a result of the 2010 earthquake. Five percent of amputees in Haiti are a result of diabetes. The number of people with diabetes is expected to rise from 161,000 to 400,000 by 2030. Mobility Outreach International has been working in Haiti since 2011 when it first established its prosthetic and rehabilitation workshop in Cap-Haïtien.

Clubfoot

The Haiti Clubfoot program began in 2012 with the purpose to end neglected clubfoot in northern Haiti. We aim to open a total of 30 clubfoot clinics, hold nationwide tenotomy training, and pilot a clubfoot curriculum. Our locally-trained team members continue to make refinements to the foot abduction brace.
