PGSSC resources for developing National Surgical, Obstetric and Anesthesia Plans


One of Safe Surgery 2020's lead partners, the Harvard Program in Global Surgery and Social Change (PGSSC), is working with several Ministries of Health to develop National Surgical, Obstetric and Anesthesia Plans (NSOAP). This is a national health plan specifically focused on surgical capacity and access in a country - something which has been traditionally not present in most national health plans. 

PGSSC have developed a series of resources to facilitate the process of initiating and implementing a NSOAP.
