Title:
Surgery in low-income countries during crisis: experience at Médecins Sans Frontières facilities in 20 countries between 2008 and 2014
Authors:
Trelles, M; Dominguez, L; Stewart, B

Tropical Medicine & International Health
Abstract:
The global burden of trauma and surgical conditions fall disproportionately on low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).(1, 2) Inopportunely, developing countries are least equipped to provide essential surgical care.(3) Consequently, LMICs have a significant burden of unmet surgical needs.(4) When these fragile health systems are disrupted by conflict, a natural disaster or an epidemic the volume and quality of surgical care decreases even further.
