Program Description

Bring your Orthotist skills and passion to Bangladesh!

IDEAS partners with a 150-bed hospital and healthcare training center that brings physical, social, emotional, and spiritual health to the marginalized in Bangladesh. 

Our partner facilitates 25 clinics in communities around the hospital, each meeting the needs of 33,000 people. The clinics provide pregnancy care and support, and community development and disaster preparedness activities. The center 
is growing capacity in local government health clinics, training clinical staff and facilitating community oversight and accountability.

This center provides high-quality training for staff and government and NGO health workers, including various types of maternal and child healthcare trainings. Because of access to community and hospital health and socio-economic data, our partnering hospital is increasingly called upon to assist in research programsRecognized for its high-quality services, the hospital sets an example to national and worldwide health and development hospitals and organizations. 

The hospital operates a rehabilitation unit for children with disabilities, including a clubfoot program and also adult therapy services. Many of the children seen come with a diagnosis of cerebral palsy and, as such, ankle foot-orthotics (AFOs) are needed. The hospital is seeking for an orthotist who will be willing to come and train local staff on how to do such orthosis and to set up a running program that will ensure sustainability of such a service.

The center's primary purpose is to serve God through serving the poor and underprivileged, particularly women and children.
