Increasing Access to Surgical Services for the Poor in Rural Pakistan

Although surgical care has not been seen as a priority in the international public health community, surgical disease creates a substantial portion of the global burden of illness and must urgently be addressed. The experience of the nongovernmental organizations and Partners In Health (PIH) in Pakistan demonstrates the potential for success of a surgical program in a rural, resource-poor area when services are provided through the public sector, integrated with primary health care services, and offered free of charge to patients who cannot pay. Providing surgical care in resource-constrained settings is an issue of global health equity and must be featured in national and international discussions on the improvement of global health. There are numerous training, funding, and programmatic considerations, several of which are raised by considering the data from Haiti presented here.

Poverty and Poor Health

Poverty and income discrimination in Pakistan has been increasing during the last few years. Research shows that people with higher incomes tend to enjoy better health than those with lower incomes. The health status of families weakens when children get older, and costs of living go up.
Poverty affects the health of children even before they are born. The growth of the fetus is affected by the nutritional status of mothers. This is comprehensible in the context of competing expenses between food and healthcare. Accordingly, the health of mothers has a strong bearing on the health of human populations.
