The Uganda Poverty Eradication Plan has stated that disability is a frequent cited cause of poverty in Uganda. In response, the Uganda Sustainable Clubfoot Care Project (USCCP), a partnership between the University of British Columbia (UBC) and Makerere University in Uganda, was created. Since 2000, the USCCP has been providing congenital clubfoot treatment and educating the community and practitioners. In 2010, the USCCP is going to begin evaluating the outcomes of their interventions which include awareness programs and workshops for health personnel. The California School of Podiatric Medicine will be assisting the USCCP in the collection and analysis of outcome data over the month of April 2010. This outcome data analysis is being organized by senior epidemiologist, Dr. Richard Mathias, of the UBC. This presentation updates attendees on developments of the CSPM rotation with the USCCP since its introduction at last year's annual APHA meeting.
