Following this lecture tour, a recommendation was made in a report to the Commonwealth Foundation. This report entitled ‘Orthopaedic Problems in the Newer World, Commonwealth Foundation Occasional Paper Number X, 1971’, recommended a seminar in Oxford to discuss the recommendations of the 84 page report. This first meeting in Oriel College, Oxford in September 1973 of 39 leading orthopaedic surgeons from all parts of the world is shown.
This seminar directly resulted in the formation of World Orthopaedic Concern. This is an organisation which has now nearly 2,000 orthopaedic surgeons around the world. Many of these surgeons are prepared to visit, at their own expense, developing countries in order to train local doctors, surgeons and paramedics. Details about World Orthopaedic Concern are on this website, and should be viewed in conjuntion with this paper.
