Call to Action: Lancet Letter in Support of Global Surgical Indicators

Surgical and anaesthesia care indicators are currently missing from the Global Reference List of 100 Core Health Indicators, a policy document developed by international health agency leaders including the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Bank, and the United States Agency for International Development  (USAID).  These Core Health Indicators are intended to coordinate global monitoring and evaluation standards and to reflect emerging global priorities including the post-2015 sustainable development goals and universal health coverage.

Action: We are inviting all interested organizations to join us in signing a Letter to the Editor urging Global Health Agency Leaders to prioritize surgical indicators as part of the list of 100 Core Health Indicators.  This letter is currently being considered for publication in The Lancet Journal. 

Deadline: 12:00 am (Midnight) Greenwich Mean Time, November 2, 2014
