Hi Yohali,
Thank you for the comments. I have been involved right from the beginning in bringing the wheelchair trainings to Bhutan. Number of people including I had been instrumental in collaborating with health volunteers overseas in this project. One of the main factors behind starting the wheelchair clinic was that my department had been dealing with wheelchairs and assistive devices even before the WSTP training but we didn’t have dedicated clinic days and the service was not as prescribed in WHO WSTP. The supports from various stakeholders contributed to moving this project forward.
Jamie Noon, was the lead trainer in both WSTP basic and intermediate levels. Christine Cornick led the WSTP managers and stakeholders package.
