Global Surgery at the WHO By Jaymie Claire Ang Henry | 15 Aug, 2011

Global Surgery at the WHO is through the Emergency and Essential Surgical Care (EESC) program, which was started in 2004 and has spread to more than 38 low-and-middle income countries worldwide. The program has launched numerous tools for bringing surgical care to the grassroots level, including a comprehensive manual on the most basic surgical procedures, policy aids to establish surgical care, a checklist of essential surgical equipment, and more. All these tools are for free and can be downloaded from the website at http://www.who.int/surgery/en/
