Everyday, children worldwide suffer from cleft conditions because they do not have the access to safe surgery they need to live a healthy and fulfilling life.

I pledge to advocate for safe surgery and it access worldwide, until we heal every child with a cleft.

The Issue

Lack of access to safe surgery is major problem that affects billions1 of people worldwide. It is an essential component of universal health care and a universal human right.

Safe Surgery

  • The majority of people who lack access to safe surgical care are often the poorest in their countries, excluded from care due to economic and social barriers and residing in remote locations far from surgical sites.
  • The truth is, more people die each year from the lack of access to safe surgery than from AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined,2 but very few people are talking about surgery as a global health priority.
  • Safe surgery means providing patients with the highest quality of care, based on the highest medical standards, no matter where they live.

Barriers to Care

Operation Smile strives to help patients overcome the barriers to care, whether they are geographical, economic or social, so that they are able to fully access and benefit from health services.
