Since 2011, the GSC and its partners has been evaluating the poorest countries for their ability to provide surgery and safe anesthesia. To date we have surveyed 12 countries: Bangladesh, Bolivia, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Guyana, Laos, Liberia, Mozambique, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Rwanda, and Uganda.  This information is invaluable to the government, health care system and donors interesting in investing in these countries.
