The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) is supporting Foundation of Orthopedics and Complex Spine (FOCOS) in building a new rehabilitation center in Ghana that will provide lifesaving access to rehabilitation services and essential prosthetics and orthotics to many thousands of people.

The new facility will also serve as a regional center of excellence and train health care staff in best practices to help foster system-wide improvements.

Established in 1998, FOCOS has performed more than three thousand complex surgeries and offered orthopedic care to more than 60,000 people. The more-than-15-year partnership between FOCOS and SNF has seen major strides in the quality of care available, including with the opening of the FOCOS hospital.

“The impact for those thousands of people will be gaining a quality of life that would otherwise be unattainable,” said Program Officer Ange Munyakazi of the forthcoming rehabilitation center.
