Consortium of Universities for Global Health Conference Session Features Essential Surgery Volume


DCP3 celebrated the publication of the Essential Surgery volume with presentations by the volume's editors and an interactive panel discussion on March 26, 2015 at the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) 6th Annual Conference in Boston, MA.  The panel featured the following volume editors and authors:


The session addressed some of the main findings of the volume, which seeks to better define the health burden of conditions requiring surgery; identify those surgical procedures that are the most cost-effective and cost-beneficial; and describe the health care policies and platforms that can universally deliver these procedures at high quality. The Essential Surgery volume examines new evidence for the unmet need and potential impact of surgery on saving lives in low-and-middle-income countries (LMICs).
