Charity description

Global Clubfoot Initiative logo
Global Clubfoot Initiative (GCI) is an umbrella organisation for organisations working with children with clubfoot in LMICs. Through advocacy, education and collaboration GCI works towards the goal it shares with its partners: that every child born with clubfoot should receive the treatment they need to live a life free from disability. 

Four in five of the 174,000 children born each year with clubfoot around the world are born in low income countries. Less than 15% of these children receive the treatment they need and as a result face the rest of their lives with a severe disability causing pain, difficulty in walking and exclusion from society.

GCI has launched Run Free 2030 a Global Strategy to End Clubfoot Disability - our vision is of a world where every child born with clubfoot can walk and run free disability.

We know the world can change for these children – more and more clinicians are being trained to provide effective clubfoot treatment and comprehensive programmes put in place to provide services. For the majority of children treated, this means they can now walk, run and play with their friends.

Please support our Global Strategy. Help us ensure that by 2030 at least 70% of children in lower and middle income countries can access the treatment they need.
