Abstract

A model for developing and delivering health care systems for treating individuals with craniofacial deformities in developing countries requires defining processes that are manageable within the contexts of governments, hospitals, health care environments, and local communities.The model presented in this article is based on 6 principles that have been defined and refined by working in 10 countries since 1975. The 6 principles are designed to enhance quality of life and issues of equity within society for patients with facial deformity. The model also promotes the importance of professional equity within multidisciplinary health care teams.
