Our Work

The Cameroon Baptist Convention (CBC) Health Services has been implementing a national program for clubfoot treatment in 6 out of the 10 regions of Cameroon since 2014. Due to an absence of funding from partners to support clubfoot treatment in Cameroon beyond 2024 and to build on the existing gains made by the Cameroon Clubfoot Care project, the CBC Health Services reached out to MiracleFeet to bridge this gap in ensuring access to quality clubfoot treatment in Cameroon using the Ponseti method. 

In partnership with CBC Health Services, MiracleFeet will support awareness raising on clubfoot in the community by integrating clubfoot identification and referral in district public heath activities. This will leverage the existing network already created by CBC Health Services and MoH for the management of clubfoot in Cameroon, where health districts are being coordinated by the regional delegations of public health to implement and report on clubfoot identification and referral for treatment. MiracleFeet will also support the organization of CAST trainings, tenotomy training, supportive supervision activities, provide treatment material and clinic equipment, monitor quality of care at all levels at different stage, and ensure patient follow up.

Our Partner

The Cameroon Baptist Convention (CBC) Health Services is the medical arm of the Cameroon Baptist Convention which offers holistic (preventive, curative, rehabilitative and palliative) services to millions of people both at facility and community levels in Cameroon.  It runs the second largest network of health facilities (8 hospitals, 32 integrated health centers and 62 primary health centers) in the country after the government, covering 9 out of the 10 regions of the country.   CBC Health Services runs several programs that address human suffering and wellbeing for people across all social categories and has continually intensified its services to vulnerable, underserved and underprivileged populations using inclusive approaches.

The effective presence of the CBC health Services on the national territory has led to the successful implementation of the Cameroon Clubfoot Care project in 6 regions in Cameroon, largely a result of their vast experience in implementing externally funded public health initiatives in collaboration with over 21 partner organizations. The CBC Health Services is keen to and highly compliant to engagements taken with its partners and is committed to prevent, treat and rehabilitate disabilities. As one of the major stakeholders in Cameroon’s health space, the CBC Health Services has a compelling track record in health system strengthening, excellent collaboration with MoH and other sectors, a network with community structures and leaders, good governance system, and a quality system of monitoring and evaluation including supportive supervision.
