The worldwide demand for cleft repair surgery is staggering and can only be met if we develop our teams both in quality and in numbers, and keep striving for a self-sustaining system. CLAPP can only meet its goals if we expand our models, and build public/private (national & International) partnerships as well as additional infrastructure.
CLAPP strongly believes in continuing education and training to the young Surgeons, Speech Therapists and Cleft Orthodontists.
