COA Global Surgery (COAGS) Executive Statement - Nepal Earthquake

The COA Global Surgery (COAGS) Program Executive is releasing the following statement regarding the recent Nepal earthquake tragedy and the subsequent COA member response to aid in this tragedy:

It is well known that orthopaedic services are one of the foremost surgical needs required in the early days and weeks following any major earthquake. Mass numbers of victims with multiple fractures, crush injuries and spine fractures will inundate any regular health system, but in a very poor country such as Nepal, their abilities could become further overwhelmed. With more than 5000 people dead as of April 29, 2015, the trauma injury triangle would predict five times that number of victims (25,000) with major trauma-based injuries. This number will no doubt rise once the many villages in the Khumbu Valley region north of Kathmandu are reached.

Unique Fellowship Teaching Opportunity in Tanzania

Children's Orthopaedics Education for Developing Nations (COEDN) invites active and retired paediatric orthopaedic surgeons to "teach the teachers" in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. This unique, sustainable program will commence September 15, 2015 and run for a year. We are booking volunteer surgeons for 3-4 week assignments. We will train 3 carefully selected fellows all there is to know about paediatric orthopaedics. Two to three trainees will stay on at the Muhimbili Orthopedic Institute (MOI) and join the only pedipod (the program director) currently in Tanzania, a country of 50 million (50% of the population is under 18 y.o.). This core of pedipods will become the nucleus for a permanent fellowship training program for the east Africa region.

This model has great potential to be exported to other subspecialties and medical disciplines in the future. All volunteer surgeons' airfare, room and board will be paid for. Click here for more information. Interested parties may contact Dr. Mark A. Barry This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or visit
