• Professor P. Jani has been invited to an attend
implementation meeting of the Lancet
Commission on Global surgery. His
experience, vision, and commitment to the
quality and accessibility of safe, surgical care

• The meeting, Lancet Commission on Global
Surgery Implementation Review will be held
February 9-13, 2015 at the Rockefeller

experience and interest in driving health

the review is to reflect on the practicality and
real-world application. Please note below our
three main goals for this review:
• 1.
Generate/ disseminate new knowledge

• 2.
Develop or disseminate solutions to
existing problems
• 3.
Enable emergence of new global
initiatives through existing organisations

safety and efficacy of clinical procedures in
Anaesthesia, Surgery, Orthopaedics, and
