What we do

Times have changed.

For the first time in history, you’re more likely to be killed by a surgically-treatable condition than an infectious disease.

But around the world, millions of lives are put at risk every year because of unsafe surgery and anaesthesia.  At Lifebox, we believe surgery and anaesthesia should be life-saving, not life-threatening.

From improving the conditions of obstetric-related surgeries to building global networks through partnerships with local colleagues and charities, we’re the only NGO in the world dedicated to making surgery and anaesthesia safer.

Over the last five years we’ve provided more than 15,000 pulse oximeters to partners in 100 countries, making surgery safer for an estimated 10 million patients.
