CUGH 2018 Satellite Session – Disparities in Global Surgery: Building systems and networks through collaboration,  March 15, 2018

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 identify and fill the gaps through multispecialty collaboration in low resource areas.  CME credit will be available for the session.

The 2018 CUGH Conference | Health Disparities: A Time for Action,  March 16-18, 2018

CUGH’s 9th annual conference, New York City, March 15-18, 2018, is the world's leading academic global health conference. This year's theme, Health Disparities: A Time for Action, reflects one of the world's great challenges. The increasing gap in opportunity, security, health and prosperity between the poor and middle class, and the rich, continues to grow and threatens to undermine the gains in development we have seen over the last few decades.
