Visión de Mobile Surgery International (MSI)

Ofrecer cirugías y atención gratis a todos los niños de México que sufren innecesariamente de labio y/o paladar hendido

Misión de MSI

  • Proveer cirugías y atención integral a los niños que sufren de deformidades craneofaciales 
  • Utilizar hospitales quirúrgicos móviles para brindar atención a las comunidades desatendidas
  • Capacitar a médicos y enfermeras para que puedan ayudar con la misión por generaciones
  • Desarrollar modelos para erradicar enfermedades quirúrgicas desatendidas a nivel mundial

URGENCIA

Por primera vez en la historia de la humanidad, las muertes a nivel mundial por falta de atención quirúrgica han superado a las muertes por enfermedades infecciosas y transmisibles. Los países de bajos recursos son especialmente vulnerables puesto que 9 de cada 10 personas carecen de acceso a atención quirúrgica básica.

En todo el mundo, 7.9 MILLONES de niños (el 6 % de los nacimientos anuales totales) nacen con un defecto de nacimiento grave. Cada año, 1 de cada 700 niños en todo el mundo nacen con deformidades faciales, como labio o paladar hendido. Más de 2 MILLONES de personas en todo el mundo viven con labio o paladar hendido sin tratar. El abordaje de las condiciones quirúrgicas desatendidas alivia la discapacidad de millones de personas y optimiza las economías locales de países de bajos recursos.

IMPACTO

Las condiciones quirúrgicas desatendidas ocasionan discapacidad a millones de personas y familias. El impacto de la enfermedad no sólo se limita a la persona enferma, sino que se extiende a otras personas de su entorno de las cuales recibe soporte. La discapacidad de un individuo tiene un impacto sobre la productividad y economía de su familia y su comunidad. De hecho, se estima una pérdida económica global de 12.3 billones de dólares entre 2015 y 2030 causada por la discapacidad individual y familiar asociada a condiciones quirúrgicas desatendidas. 

MSI busca fortalecer la infraestructura quirúrgica y los recursos humanos locales, y así liberar el potencial de miles de personas, dándoles la libertad de una vida plena y productiva para contribuir, junto con sus familias, al desarrollo de sus comunidades.

SOSTENIBILIDAD

Durante décadas las misiones o jornadas quirúrgicas fueron la herramienta principal de cooperación internacional en cirugía humanitaria. Una estrategia con buenas intenciones, pero con grandes limitaciones en capacidad inmediata y sostenibilidad a largo plazo. 

La estrategia asistencial de MSI está enfocada en incrementar la capacidad quirúrgica de la región aportando infraestructura hospitalaria de última generación, entrenando a profesionales de la salud locales y estableciendo acuerdos de colaboración a nivel local e internacional. Como resultado, MSI es capaz de ofrecer tratamiento a un gran volumen de pacientes, en un espacio de tiempo prolongado, garantizando la calidad, la seguridad y el seguimiento postoperatorio.

For many families, this was the first medical consultation their child had ever received. Many other children are being scheduled for surgical and comprehensive care appointments at our mobile surgical hospital in Oaxaca City.
