#WCALifebox – Ethiopia

Lifebox has worked in Ethiopia since 2011 with a range of partners including Operation Smile and the Clinton Health Access Initiative. We’ve collaborated with local colleagues to introduce the WHO Surgical Safety Checklist, distribute pulse oximeters and deliver essential training to anaesthesia providers across the country. In 2015 we launched an exciting next step in our safer surgery work: Clean Cut. This pilot study, funded by GE Foundation and beginning at Jimma University Teaching Hospital, targets a life-threatening risk for surgical patients – surgical site infection.
