The WHO Surgical Safety Checklist turns 10 this summer. In just a decade, this powerful driver for safer surgery has spread to operating rooms across the world.
It's at the heart of everything we do at Lifebox, and this year we’ll be exploring, challenging and celebrating the teamwork that makes surgery truly life-saving.
Register here to join author and Lifebox chair Atul Gawande in conversation with leading global health academic Ilona Kickbusch at the The Graduate Institute in Geneva. As the 71st World Health Assembly opens, they'll consider why access to safe surgery is fundamental to meeting the SDGs, how the Checklist spread around the world, and routes to surgical equity.
The event is open to the public, free to attend, and followed by a reception co-sponsored by the Challenge Prize Centre at Nesta. We hope to see you there.
