Excerpt
For the purposes of this discussion it is assumed that a surgeon has been called to work in a developing country of the Third or Fourth World, and this assumption carries some important corollaries. Firstly, there will be cash limits because the total expenditure on health care per capita per annum may well not exceed $2.35 (less than 1% of the health expenditure of the United Kingdom). And it is to be remembered that the cost of surgical equipment, including disposable materials, may well be two or three times the cost in the United Kingdom. Secondly, there will be difficulty in ordering supplies and equipment, not only because the nearest surgical instrument manufacturer may be 2000 miles away and orders may take over a year to come through, but also because the supporting services and administrative machinery may be decidedly weak.
