National conference to improve prosthetic access

Last week we were invited to attend a Bolivian government initiated meeting to discuss the state of prosthetics and orthotics in the country. Or rather, to discuss the lack of P&O capability. The national Ministry of health had the largest delegation, but also in attendance were representatives from the Ministry of the Vice President. International organizations represented were Handicap International, and the International Committee of the Red Cross. Of all the groups, FUNPROBO, our partner and the reciever of these donations, was the only organization which actually produces prosthetic limbs and almost all of the government representatives were very surprised to know that FUNPROBO even existed. We found this quite shocking since FUNPROBO provides more prosthetic limbs then any other governmental, or non-governmental organization in the country. The plan is to meet monthly to strategize and plan how to improve the ability to provide more and better prosthetic limbs at a national level. We hope that this meeting will be the linchpin to get more local support for FUNPROBO, as well as possibly some international help.
