Africa’s Future of Reconstructive Surgery is Female

Globally, injuries kill over 6 million people a year. Surviving catastrophic injuries like accidents or burns can mean a lifetime of pain and disfigurement. 
 
Skilled plastic surgeons can make an enormous difference in quality of life, but there is a global shortage. The pinch is felt especially hard across Africa. Malawi, for example, has only 3 plastic surgeons to serve 17 million people. 
 
But there’s promise for the sector’s future—and it’s female. 
 
Mission: Restore, a nonprofit supporting female surgeons in the traditionally male field, has already trained 200 women surgeons in more than 25 African nations.
