The Johns Hopkins Global Surgical Initiatives

A Collaboration of the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health


Over 2 billion people worldwide do not have access to basic
surgical, obstetrical and anesthesia services.

A Global Burden
Each year more than 6 million people die from conditions caused by complications of
pregnancy, trauma, burns, congenital abnormalities and other surgical issues. That's more
than the number of deaths caused by HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.
Countless more people suffer from preventable disability and chronic illness.

An Urgent Problem
Limited resources and inadequate clinical capacity in the world's poorest countries contribute
to millions deaths each year. Many of these tragic deaths could be prevented through basic
and low-cost surgical, obstetrical and anesthesia interventions.

A Timely Solution
The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine proposes an innovative solution: the development of a
multidisciplinary collaborating center for dedicated to providing direct service and training to
save lives and improve quality of life in low-income countries.
