The Lancet Commission on Global Surgery Bellagio Implementation Meeting was held February 9-13, 2015 at the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center in Bellagio, Italy on Lake Como.
The purpose of this meeting was to develop a plan to support implementation of the Commission’s recommendations in order to generate progress towards universal access to safe, affordable surgical and anesthesia care when needed. We convened a small group of experts from around the world who have experience in generating health improvements at local, national and global levels in order to develop plans on how to:
Engage with stakeholders at local, national and global levels
Support policy change to improved delivery of surgical and anesthesia care
Support funding generation to improve delivery of surgical and anesthesia care
