In addition to treating individual children, we also seek to understand more about the causes and effects of the conditions we treat, specifically in the African context. Because of this, many of our staff and volunteers have pursued research related to their work with us, on subjects ranging from Encephalocele to wheelchair breakdowns. We have collected as many of their research publications and articles as possible, and have made them available below.
