Interburns has developed the first set of operational standards for burns services in Low and Middle Income Countries, guidelines that define the staff skills and knowledge, equipment and operational capabilities required to achieve good outcomes for burn patients, despite limited resources. This project will pilot the standards in Bangladesh and Nepal, using training and education programmes to drive improvements in burn care in 14 selected burn services across both countries, ranging from small rural units to national burn centres in Dhaka and Kathmandu. The project will address a target population of more than 10,000 burn patients - the majority children and young women - improving the quality of care they receive and reducing the massive burden of preventable suffering, death and disability from burn injuries in Bangladesh and Nepal.
