CONNECT. CARE. CHANGE.
Tin Soldiers is NOT a patient support organisation,
we ARE all about early diagnosis and connecting
patients to pathways of care.
What this means is that we find people with FOP and all paediatric musculoskeletal conditions, who are living without a diagnosis, and connect them to care and support. We do this by creating far-reaching awareness, leveraging partner networks and educating healthcare professionals
THE TIN SOLDIERS NETWORK
We are finding new FOP patients every year, thanks to our incredible network of clinicians and partners.
Yes we ARE finding needles in haystacks, all over the world.
At the launch of the Tin Soldiers program in 2020, there were 16 known and connected cases in Africa; 15 of which were in South Africa. As of April 2022, there are 37 known cases in Africa, with the additional 22 cases having been identified or diagnosed either directly through the Tin Soldiers program or by clinicians within
our growing network of FOP-educated professionals.
In India, 3 new cases have been identified through the Tin Soldiers program with another
child diagnosed in Australia.
