We are proud to have supported the Global Initiative for Children's Surgery, a fantastic grass-roots organization that is working to improve surgical care for children globally. Follow here or sign up for their email newsletter!
It’s time to address children’s surgical needs across the globe. @HarvardPGSSC and @GICSurgery estimate that scale-up of surgical delivery through increase in the SAO workforce could prevent over 500,000 children from dying before the age of 5 annually. https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s00268-021-06181-6
