The Zambian-Italian Orthopaedic Hospital (ZIOH) in Lusaka is an independent charitable institution providing free treatment of physically disabled children. The orthopaedic team use state of the art surgical techniques for the treatment of congenital and acquired musculo-skeletal abnormalities. The hospital was founded in 1995 by visiting Italian surgeons and the hospital has extended its services to all those who need it, however, the only people eligible for free treatment are disabled children.
High-tech medicine like total knee replacement ensures the financial base for the badly needed free service for the poor African population. The hospital is supported by a number of charitable organisations that make both monetary and component donations. Prostheses and othoses are manufactured on site in a special workshop.
