Our vision isn’t just about distributing hardware and it doesn’t stop with pulse oximetry. The provision of equipment is a nod, not a solution, to the dangerous shortfalls in global health provision. Education, training, and peer support are key.
Lifebox is working for sustainable changes of practice that will ultimately raise the safety and quality standards of global healthcare.
This is reflected in our statement of purpose:
1. To preserve and protect the health of patients worldwide by providing and assisting in the provision of equipment and support services in low resource and lower-middle income countries at no or reduced cost.
2. To advance the education in healthcare of the general public and especially those in the medical or similar professions by the provision of education and training worldwide.
Surgical safety knows no religion, nationality or race, and we are proud to collaborate with a range of secular and faith-based organizations that share this principle.
