Surgical, obstetric and anesthesia care plays an integral role in primary health care and includes access to diagnostic technologies including radiology and pathology to appropriately treat disease processes. The challenge remains to bring access to safe and affordable surgical, obstetric and anesthesia care to low resource settings in our world where 5 billion people have no access. This full day CUGH-satellite session will bring together experts and panels to explore just how we can take action to identifyand fill the gaps through multispecialty collaboration in low resource areas.

Attendees will meet experts who are actively engaged in collaborations in academics, government, nonprofit, industry and professional societies. The overlap and interplay of all of these areas are critical to building safe, sustainable surgical systems and patient care.
