Apply for Surgical Instruments

According to the World Journal of Surgery, lack of access to essential medical and surgical instruments is one factor leading to a post-operative infection rate of up to 45% in some low-resource countries. By expanding our Safe Surgery product offer, we hope to improve patient outcomes by addressing the lack of adequate instrumentation in low resource settings.

If approved, you are required to leave the donated surgical instruments at your in-country facility so that they can be used year-round, regardless of the presence of a visiting medical team.
