The crew of the Africa Mercy

FIVE BILLION PEOPLE around the globe have no access to safe, affordable surgery when they need it. Tragically, conditions requiring surgical treatment kill more people in low-income countries than HIV/Aids, TB and malaria combined. Even benign conditions can become deadly if neglected.
