BURN SURGERY TRAINING

The burn surgery program provides essential skills and training that contributes to greater access to quality healthcare in under-resourced areas of the world.

teach one. heal many.

Within Central America and the Caribbean, 70 percent of burn victims are children.

According to the World Health Organization, 95 percent of the world’s burn-related deaths occur in underserved areas.

Trained professionals reduce victims’ devastating physical and emotional scars, helping them to return to productive, normal lives in the classroom, at work and with their families.

Without proper care, burn survivors suffer from painful contractures, as the skin tightens over their wounds and severely limits their ability to move freely.

We train and mentor an array of healthcare providers, including surgeons, nurses, therapists and psychologists, who care for patients with burn injuries at different stages of their recovery.

Burns are lifetime injuries, requiring dedicated medical care for years after the initial injury.
