This report was commissioned to understand the impacts of a Nippon Foundation investment in orthotics and prosthetics training and clinical services in Asia. Three main impact areas were examined. They were; 1) the total number of graduates, their career trajectories and estimates of the services provided; 2) how a new P&O workforce has integrated into national health sectors; 3) the impact on the lives of people who use P&O services.
