On Thursday, Jan. 28, Devex and United Surgeons for Children are hosting an event that will look at lessons learned from sustainable models of south-to-south capacity building and its role in improving access to pediatric surgery around the globe. Prior to the pandemic, an estimated 5 billion people were living without access to surgery. Yet improved access to surgery has the potential to save 10 million lives each year.
The event will aim to facilitate a conversation about how surgical experts can best train and transfer new knowledge and technologies to elevate local capacities in pediatric surgeries between countries in the global south, as well as highlight ways in which similar models could help expand access to care and surgery.
