As a UK trained physician and public health researcher, this module is of great importance. Poor quality surgical care is a social injustice, where mothers are unable to trust the care they receive during the most critical times of need. This has just re-entered the UK public news domain through the ASOS trial, which reports African mothers suffer x50 higher risk of dying post c-section than UK mothers.

Surgical systems are vital for achieving UHC and intersect with major public health foci such as cancer care, injuries and maternal & child health and so we are undoubtedly facing an increase of surgical care delivered. With just 3 additional questions, the DHS can begin to monitor and thus change the surgical quality inequity seen in LMICs.
