Defeating clubfoot by 2022 is a mission, says President Ram Nath Kovind
President Ram Nath Kovind has called for a solution to make treatment services accessible to children born with clubfoot by 2022.
As India completes 75 years of independence in 2022, the president aims to defeat and remove clubfoot from the list of public health problems.
Clubfoot is a birth defect in which the foot is twisted out of shape or position. It affects the child's movement and confidence.
Kovind also called for prevention and treatment of curable disabilities and inclusion of the disabled by giving them equal opportunities in social and professional life.
