No Water Needed
Formerly referred to as the "neglected stepchild of global health," the lack of access to basic surgery is slowly gaining traction as a critical global health issue.
Addressing this issue requires addressing shortages of the three necessary components of surgical care: trained personnel, functional anesthesia delivery and monitoring, and a method of proper sterilization for instruments and supplies.
It is now estimated that 28% of the global burden of disease is due to conditions that can be prevented or treated with essential surgery, including childbirth complications, injury and trauma, and non-communicable disease.
