30,000 PATIENTS : 150,000 LIVES TOUCHED

Arbutus Medical products are used around the world every day, helping patients from Canada to South Africa to Syria and beyond. 

The company grew out of a desperate need for improved surgical equipment in Uganda, where Canadian surgeons worked with local hospitals to save limbs and save lives. 

We've looked at the impact of injury in East Africa, and found that for every injured individual there are 5 dependants whose lives are impacted. On average, when a breadwinner gets injured, the family income is reduced by 80% and children drop out of school permanently.

We're committed to working with partners like the AO Alliance Foundation, M├ędecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), and SIGN Fracture Care to help bring safe surgery to the 5 billion people around the world who lack access.

Quick Facts

  • 5 billion people around the world don't have access to safe surgery
  • 2 billion of whom don't have access to surgery at all
  • 5.8 million die annually as a result of their injuries
  • 10% of the world's deaths are due to accident related injuries
  • 32% more deaths are caused by injury than those caused by malaria, tuberculosis, and HIV/AIDS combined.

In developing nations, motor vehicle accidents and injuries are extremely common. As countries develop, they see an increase in the number of cars on the road. However the roads, regulations, and enforcement don't always keep up with this growth in vehicular traffic. Due to these poor driving conditions it is not surprising that 25 million people are injured every year due to road accidents. 

Car crashes and road accidents often cause broken bones and injuries that require surgery. However, the surgeons in these areas often lack the tools and resources to operate safely on patients.  Surgeries often result in lifelong disabilities due to infections from non-sterile settings/equipment or imprecise tools like hand drills.  If the bread winner is injured, families can be left without the resources needed to sustain day to day life.
