Safe Surgery and Health.
Today, around the world, 5 billion people – that’s 5 out of every 7 people – don’t have access to safe, affordable surgical care. Help us tell the world that surgical care is an essential part of Universal Health Coverage.
By Signing the Declaration, You Are:
Supporting prioritization of surgical and anaesthesia care as part of Universal Health Coverage and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals;
Urging governments to integrate safe, affordable surgical and anaesthesia care as part of national health plans and data collection efforts;
Calling on world leaders to host a high-level UN summit on surgical and anaesthesia care and to establish a coordinated global strategy.
This campaign is a call to action! Let’s make it impossible for world leaders to ignore our voices. Let’s stand united in support of the 5 billion people who don’t have access to surgical care. Let's tell their governments and the world that their lives are worth saving. This can’t wait.
Sign the declaration today and join us in calling for a global target of providing safe surgical and anaesthesia care for 80% of the world by 2030.
