WORLD DEVELOPMENT INDICATORS - SURGICAL DATA COLLECTION 2016

World Bank

To assess longitudinal changes in the six surgical indicators proposed by the Lancet Commission on Global Surgery, in 2016, a second data collection on these indicators pertaining to surgery for each country worldwide was performed. Under the supervision of Mr. Andy Leather and Dr. Justine Davies at King’s College London, and in collaboration with Dr. John Meara at Harvard University, and the WHO GIEESC (Global Initiative on Emergency and Essential Surgical Care), between July 2016 and January 2017, selected members of the International Student Surgical Network (InciSioN) took a mixed methods approach to collect this data, which have been updated in the World Bank database on July, 1st 2017.
