The Place of Surgery in International Development

Current Edition: 1st, 2009

Publisher: Canadian Network for International Surgery

Instructor’s Guide (First Edition, 2009):

International organizations and national governments alike are increasingly aware of the need for adequate surgical service and for the prevention of injury.

Such a challenge demands a response. International development in health presupposes that efforts aimed at responding to this challenge will focus on both enhanced care and sustainability.

1. Current Surgical Reality in Low-Income Countries
2. Principles of International Surgery Development
3. Project Paper
4. Cross-Cutting Themes in International Development
