Safe Surgery 2020 Impact Report

September 1, 2020

Access to safe and high-quality surgical care is critical to advancing global healthcare and improving the lives of millions of people around the world. Unfortunately, safe surgical care remains beyond the reach of far too many people. The Safe Surgery 2020 (SS2020) initiative has explored innovative models for expanding safe surgical care, and has contributed valuable insights and ideas for improving surgical and health care systems.

This report is intended to share SS2020’s impact, findings, and best practices; spark new ideas; engage new champions; and advance new approaches in global surgery. We trust that the report will prove useful for governments seeking to prioritize safe surgical care, funders looking to invest in under-funded health priorities, and implementers looking to refine their approaches—and that it will serve as inspiration to the broader general global health audience.
