Advancing Health Care

Standards To Save Lives

Global initiatives to improve health have traditionally focused on immunization, sanitation, nutrition and infectious diseases in low and middle-income countries. In spite of this, available data shows that surgical diseases are a very significant public health and social burden that have, unfortunately, been traditionally neglected in favour of infectious diseases.

The total volume of surgery undertaken worldwide has recently been estimated as 234 million procedures per year, compared to 136 million births worldwide (Weiser, Regenbogen et al The Lancet 372(9633): 139-144.)

 

Obstetrics is therefore critical to public health, with safe surgery and safe anaesthesia being critical components of comprehensive emergency obstetric care.( Epiu I. et al BMC Pregnancy and Child Birth 17 (2017): 387. PMC.)
