"it is of immense important that care providing physicians at first care level or district level must have right knowledge and skills of Emergency and Essential Surgical Care.

Nepal has this model where Family Medicine and Emergency care are combined together and with excellent results. I suggest my honourable colleagues to visit the following link to refer to the WHO's GIEESC [*1] and WHO IMEESC [*2] toolkit on WHO's website to know more about tools on strengthening surgical services (including trauma, obstetrics, anesthesia) at various levels of care. www.who.int/surgery "
