Our Work

Lifebox is an implementation organization—we get things done.

Our programs weave around some of the most high-risk moments in surgery and anesthesia, providing hospital teams with a critical combination of equipment, education and peer support to safeguard millions of lives.

We don’t believe in a quick fix. We certainly don’t believe that colleagues in low-resource settings should ‘make do’. Our interventions are evidence-based, our equipment meets international standards, and the life-changing impact we’re making is a proven reality.

Colleague-to-colleague, across miles and specialties, we’re working together for a world where safe surgery is a right, not a privilege.
