Implementation Manual for WHO Surgical Safety Checklist

Safe surgery helps save lives, relieves disability, and prevents death from neglected common conditions. The WHO Surgical Safety Checklist helps improve the safety of surgery and avoid potentially preventable surgical complications. 

Americares is committed to advancing safe surgical and anesthesia care. Through our Safe Surgery Initiative, we aim to improve access to safer surgery in low-resource settings by increasing the number of operating room staff that have access to and are trained in the use of pulse oximetry and the WHO Surgical Safety Checklist.
