Worldwide, millions suffer from conditions that can be easily treated with simple surgical care. 50 million people suffer from injuries that can become lifelong disabilities. 5 million simply die every year. 20 million people live with debilitating hernias, unable to work 20 million people live in darkness because of cataracts. 3 million women live with obstetric fistulas, some who are as young as 12 years and as old as 84. Over 5 million babies suffer from crippling deformities of their faces and legs, unable to walk and talk. The Bay Area Global Health Film Festival is an attempt to bring neglected global health issues to light. The films and organizations supporting the festival are dedicated to awareness, advocacy and activism to ensure that critical issues in the delivery of surgical care worldwide have platforms on the greater health agenda both locally and globally.
