Capacity Created For
Operations On Children
We invest in local paediatric surgeons, giving them the tools to deliver safe surgery for their nation’s children. Our initial data suggests that a dedicated paediatric operating room can deliver an average of 50 surgical procedures per month. The estimate on our website is based on these early findings and increases each day based on the projected capacity that has been created by our installations to date. Though this figure is updated each month, it may not reflect the exact number of operations actually delivered.
To more precisely understand the impact and reach of our work, KidsOR has partnered with Yale University to lead an independent global research project investigating key factors in clinical output alongside exploring the social, geographic, and economic factors influencing access to safe surgery for children. Launched in early 2019, this will grow to become the largest ever study of the impact of surgical systems intervention for children to date.
