Health systems are sick. Around the world gaining access to necessary surgical treatment can be difficult due to inadequate healthcare infrastructures but also due to imbalanced care across demographics. Women across the globe often struggle to gain equal access to healthcare and maternity services - and not just access, but high quality care. The issue extends far past the surgeon in the operating room. It is the break in health systems, the procedures being performed, and the surgical outcomes. This is where Dr Salome Maswime and her team are trying to chart a new course for maternal health. Join us as we talk about the importance of playing a role in healthcare access, regardless of how big or small that may be. We can all play a role in helping to provide safe, comprehensive quality care for everyone around the world. In a period plagued by a pandemic, this requires innovative and out-of-the-box thinking to tackle key issues like providing gynecological services when it isn’t really practical to do vital health services such as virtual maternal check ups. The question is, will you be the next innovator to expand care?
