Did you know?

More than a billion people in the world today experience disability.

Disproportionately: Women, the Elderly, Rural Communities and Lower-Income Countries

The global population who suffers from Lower Back Pain is 18 %, with a 12-month prevalence of 38%

In Africa, the population who suffers is 32%, with a 12-month prevalence of 50%

In a study conducted in 2014, the prevalence of Lower Back Pain was 55% among teachers in Botswana

“Low back and neck pain continue to be major contributors to Botswana’s burden of disabling conditions and were responsible for about 30% more Years Lived with Disability  in 2013 than HIV/AIDS.”

You CAN make a difference simply by committing to donate a portion of your salary to support World Spine Care’s Botswana Clinics.

Here is what your gift can do:

  • $10,000 will pay for approximately one fifth of a research project, that includes the development and evaluation of an interprofessional neuromusculoskeletal screening, assessment and treatment protocols for spinal conditions encountered in residents of a rural Botswana community;
  • $3,500 will cover the costs of a flight to Botswana, and on the ground expenses for an incoming Clinical Supervisor joining the WSC Program;
  • $1,000 will provide the budget for the clinic materials (including paper, intake forms, marketing materials, and more) for one full year;
  • $500 will cover the cost of clinical tools and training materials.

What Has World Spine Care Accomplished?

Since World Spine Care launched its program in Botswana in 2013:

  • Over 20,000 patient visits have occurred in three separate clinics;
  • 80% of patients who attended the clinic saw clinically significant improvements;
  • World Spine Care has hosted two educational conferences for Clinicians, and educated over 500 professionals;
  • World Spine Care Launched the Global Spine Care Initiative that included a multidisciplinary task force of 68 spine care clinicians and researchers from 24 countries. The result was  a 15 paper special supplement that has identified recommendations for model of care that could be used to bring sustainable spine care to under served countries.
  • World Spine Care’s Botswana Program was featured in the WHO’s Integrated People-Centre Health Services as a Model of Success.
