About Us

Safe Anesthesia & Surgery Saves Lives

Five billion people lack access to safe surgical care. Surgical disease kills more people annually than HIV, TB, and malaria combined. Unfortunately, surgical capacity is least where it is needed most. Surgical care in low resource settings is cost effective and an indispensable, indivisible part of basic health care. Our philosophy is to work with anesthesia providers in low and middle-income countries (LMIC) to develop self-sustaining programs appropriate to their own needs. Consultations and collaboration with ministries of health, anesthesia providers, anesthesia societies, and local training institutions are key to building successful partnerships.
