Improving Surgery Systems in India | Overview

TOPIC: Surgery, Research & Education

The Program in Global Surgery and Social Change (PGSSC) is working in India on a broad range of projects related to implementation science, by supporting local partners in adapting and implementing The Lancet Commission on Global Surgery’s (LCoGS) recommendations for the Indian context. Through the LCoGS-India initiative, our team draws partners from all regions and over 20 states in a variety of projects, including: partnering with the Association of Rural Surgeons of India to derive a consensus statement of priority action items for surgical systems improvement; partnering with CARE India to model demand for blood supplies, evaluate surgical sterilization practices, and produce a report for the state government; assessing mortality and quality of life after intervention implementation at two public university hospitals in urban India.
