We delighted to share news that WHO resolution 68/31 on "Strengthening emergency and essential surgical care and anaesthesia as a component of universal health coverage" was unanimously approved this morning at the 68th World Health Assembly.  This historic resolution will help open the door to national capacity building, health systems strengthening and overall greater prioritization of essential surgical and anaesthesia care for those in need, often at the community and district hospital level - MAY 2015.
