Orthopaedic and trauma care in low-resource settings: the burden and its challenges
Turner, J., Duffy, S.
Background and burden: Trauma with its early and late consequences disproportionately effects those from poor countries. The availability of effective orthopaedic and trauma care varies significantly across the globe. Challenges: The balancing out of quality care is required to reach the health-related UN development goal set out in 2015. A multifactorial approach addressing local, national and international aspects is key to improving the discrepancy seen between high- and low-income countries.
