2016 Johns Hopkins-Pulitzer Center Symposium

02:00 pm - 11/02/2016

@ Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

615 N Wolfe St
Baltimore MD  21205



A mother dies giving birth. A child loses a leg because a gunshot wound will not heal. A man with a burst appendix walks miles to a hospital.
More than 5 billion people worldwide lack access to safe, affordable and timely surgical and anesthesia care. In 2010, nearly 17 million lives were lost from conditions requiring surgical care, more than the number of deaths from HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined.

The 2016 Johns Hopkins-Pulitzer Center Symposium, entitled "Operation Health: Surgery’s Emerging Role in Global Health," will explore surgery’s place on the global health agenda with surgeons who have worked in affected countries and trained local providers, and a Pulitzer Center journalist who has done in-depth reporting on the issue.
