Mobile Surgery International (MSI) Vision

Deliver free surgery and care to all children who suffer needlessly with untreated cleft lip and cleft palate facial deformities throughout Mexico

MSI’s Mission:

  • Provide comprehensive surgical care for children suffering with cleft facial deformities
  • Utilize Mobile Surgical Hospitals to deliver care to underserved communities
  • Train local doctors and nurses so help can continue for generations
  • Develop unique model to eradicate Neglected Surgical Conditions worldwide

Urgency

For the first time in human history, global deaths from the lack of surgical care have supassed that of infectious communicable disease. Low to middle-income countries suffer the worst, with 9 out of 10 people unable to access basic surgical care.

Globally, 7.9 MILLION children (6% of annual total births) are born with a serious birth defect. 1 out of every 700 children annually worldwide are born wit cleft lip and/or cleft palate (CLCP) facial deformities. Over 2 MILLION people worldwide live with untreated CLCP. Addressing Neglected Surgical Conditions will impact millions of lives, and lift local economies.

Impact

The economic impact neglected surgical needs have on communities and families, can cripple people financially, and leave millions of people disabled for life. Not only can a medical affliction take a family member out of commission, rendering them unable to help provide for a household–often times a second family member has to stay home to help care for them.

MSI seeks to unlock peoples potential and give them the freedom to have a fulfilling life, pursue work, and contribute to their family and local economies, helping reverse an estimated $12.3 trillion loss in revenue between 2015 and 2030, due to neglected surgical needs.

sustainability

For decades, the Mission Model was the primary tool to provide surgical care for those without access–a well-meaning temporary fix, but unsustainable, and with the unintentional consequence of leaving a knowledge void when the mission was completed.

MSI’s unique approach utilizes local human resources, and high tech mobile hospitals to provide comprehensive support to those in need, while training local medical professionals to remain behind, after the backlog of surgical needs is addressed.

Many other children are being scheduled for surgical and comprehensive care appointments at our mobile surgical hospital in Oaxaca City.
