We are very proud to announce that we are the newest members of the G4 Alliance for global surgery.
“The G4 Alliance is dedicated to building political priority for surgical, obstetric, trauma and anaesthesia care as part of the global development agenda. With our member organizations, we provide a collective voice in support of increased access to safe surgical care for all. Mission The G4 Alliance is committed to advocating for the neglected surgical patient and is driven by a mission of providing a collective voice for increasing access to safe, essential and timely surgical, obstetric, trauma, and anaesthesia care. Vision Universal Access to Quality Surgical, Obstetric, Trauma, and Anaesthesia Care Every human being is entitled to ready access to high quality, life-saving, safe surgical, obstetric, trauma and anaesthesia care performed in their communities. We believe that significant improvements in surgical care and anaesthesia, which save lives and prevent life-long disability or life-threatening complications, can be sustainably and affordably integrated within existing health systems. The Issue Over two billion people lack access to basic surgical services worldwide with less than 4% of all operations being delivered to the world’s poorest countries. Marginalized populations continue to suffer due to a lack of trained health care providers, inadequate infrastructure, disproportionate out of pocket healthcare costs, and lack of prioritization of surgical, obstetric, trauma and anaesthesia care as part of national health plans and more widely, the global agenda.“
CDH International is proud to work on 2 committees at the G4 Alliance and to have our President, Dawn Ireland, appointed as the Advocacy Leader for the alliance.
We look forward to working with so many incredible people and organizations to fight for better medical care of children born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia and other congenital anomalies.
