World Health Organization (WHO) + Global Health Decision Makers: Provide basic surgical care to people in developing countries

This petition had 208 supporters


Injuries kill more than 5 million people annually-that is nearly one out of every ten deaths globally. More than 90% of these deaths occur in the developing world. A significant number of these deaths could have been avoided had simple, cost effective surgical care and anesthesia been available. The fact remains that the poorest third of the world receives only 3.5% of the surgical care provided. We can change that.
