Our Research and Evaluation
A core part of our mission is to produce the evidence desperately needed to show that the impact of investing in children’s surgical infrastructure goes on to transform entire nations and their economies. With the help of our academic partners at the University of California, San Francisco and the University of Oxford, we conduct independent research to evaluate the impact of our work.
A Kids Operating Room shows the real cost, and benefit, of saving a child’s life, of preventing a life of pain and disability, and of transforming children’s futures:
