We are pleased to share that a team from GICS, under the leadership of Tahmina Banu, had their article published in The World Journal of Surgery. The article is titled “Surgically Correctable Congenital Anomalies: Reducing Morbidity and Mortality in the First 8000 Days of Life.”
Through their literature review, Tahmina Banu and team assessed the burden of surgical congenital anomalies with emphasis on those that present within the first 8000 days of life. The various patterns of diseases were analyzed in both low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) and high-income countries (HIC).
The article finds current healthcare systems in most LMICs are still unprepared to tackle the burden of disease caused by congenital anomalies. Increased investment in surgical services is needed. By sharing their findings, the team provides valuable insights and recommendations that can shape healthcare policies and practices around the world.
We encourage you to read the article which can be accessed at the following link: Surgically Correctable Congenital Anomalies: Reducing Morbidity and Mortality in the First 8000 Days of Life.
