As many as five billion people, or two-thirds of the world’s population, lack access to basic surgical services worldwide. Of these five billion people, most of them are women and children in low-income countries who suffer due to a lack of trained health care providers, expensive healthcare costs, and a lack of surgical services as part of national health plans.
In preparation for the 70th World Health Assembly, the G4 Alliance, Seed Global Health, Jhpiego, Johnson & Johnson and Crowd 360 are coming together to elevate the conversations, needs and potential collaborative solutions to support #SafeSurgery. Join us on Twitter on Tuesday, May 16 at 11:00am ET to share ways you’re working to advance access to safe surgery around the world!
