Surgery and Global Health

Discussions of global health priorities focus naturally on the large number of patients with malaria, tuberculosis, AIDS, and other infectious diseases. The epidemiology of these diseases is complex and in its broadest sense includes the global socioeconomic structures responsible for their prevalence. A recent book, Awakening Hippocrates: A Primer in Health, Poverty, and Global Service,2 places global health disparities in a historical perspective and emphasizes the role of structural violence to the poor of the world as the result of human choices in the allocation of resources. While solutions to these global epidemics are being vigorously pursued with scientific research and socioeconomic interventions, we would, however, make a gentle plea for programs directed to the victims of war and violence, children born with congenital defects, and others who have diseases and disorders that require surgical treatment.
