About TCCO

Tanzania Clubfoot Care Organization (TCCO) is a network of medical and paramedical professionals in Tanzania with the objective “to ensure every child with Clubfoot in Tanzania receives timely and quality treatment using Ponseti Method as a gold standard treatment”.

The Ponseti Method was introduced in Tanzania in 2008 with training by leaders in the global health movement of clubfoot treatment. Despite the training, providers found that it was difficult to obtain national coverage for clubfoot treatment. Challenges included the lack of materials in public hospitals, the inability of families to purchase materials, and the cost of travel to weekly clinics.

To address these challenges, miraclefeet partners with Bugando Clubfoot Care Program (BCCP) in Mwanza, Usa River Rehabilitation Center (URRC) in Arusha, and ACT Lweru CBR Programme in Kagera. Miraclefeet’s support for clubfoot treatment in Tanzania was initiated with Dr. Isidor Ngayomela, the Medical Director of BCCP. From this ground, Tanzania Clubfoot Care Organization (TCCO) was formed.

"Clubfoot treatment requires a well-functioning multidisciplinary approach where everyone recognizes that they hold the key to the bright future of children born with clubfeet. If we mobilize the required resources and dedicate all our efforts innovatively, we will not only provide treatment to the children born with clubfeet, but we will help the family, community and the Nation get rid of the disability caused by clubfoot. As a national program, TCCO partners with the Ministry of Health and President’s Office Rural Administration and Local Government (PORALG) to ensure that all children born with clubfeet receive timely and quality care.
