At the heart of what we do
Caring for the injured is essential. It must be a priority in the development of strategies to curb the devastating effects of orthopedic injuries. It only makes sense that it forms part of the development of global health systems in low-and middle-income countries (LMICs).
The common perception that trauma care is a ‘luxury’ in LMICs must be reconsidered. Its essential role in global public health must be acknowledged. Anything less will ensure that the morbidity and mortality endured by millions of people in LMICs who are unable to access surgical care will continue to be invisible to the rest of the world.
We are determined to put a stop to avoidable mortality and disability by introducing standards of care for fractures that the developed world has long taken for granted. Learn more about our three pillars of work – advocacy, policy advice, and care.
