Anesthesia, surgery, and pain management have historically been neglected by the global public health community. In 2006 it was estimated that 11% of the global burden of disease could be treated by surgical intervention with a larger but uncertain proportion of disease burden treatable with pain and palliative care services. Only recently have data become available that demonstrate inadequate access to surgical and anesthesia services is a much larger problem than initially predicted, and one that can no longer be ignored.
UCSF and the Anesthesia Division of Global Health Equity are committed to supporting anesthesia trainees and faculty both at UCSF and at partnering institutions around the world.
Join us in welcoming 5 speakers, who will share their perspectives of Anesthesia, Analgesia and Surgery in Global Health.
