Burns: ‘the forgotten global public health crisis’

Interburns is an international volunteer network of expert health professionals working to transform global burn care and prevention through education, training, research and capacity-building. Our work is guided by the philosophy that all burns patients can be provided with good quality care despite limited resources.

Our vision is a world where the enormous suffering, death and disability caused by global burn injuries have drastically decreased and every burns patient has access to the highest standards of burn care. Our motto is ‘tomorrow is too late’, because urgent action is needed to address the terrible suffering burns cause to millions of people across the world..
