The WHO Integrated Management for Emergency & Essential Surgical Care e-learning toolkit (CD) has been developed by the Clinical Procedures Unit in collaboration with the GIEESC programme. This tool targets policy-makers, managers, and health-care providers (surgeons, anaesthetists, non-specialist doctors, health officers, nurses, and technicians). This tool contains WHO recommendations for minimum standards in emergency, surgery, trauma, obstetrics and anaesthesia at first-referral level health-care facilities.

The following contents are available on the CD as well as for download. However, the videos are only available on the CD, as it would be impractical for the intended target audience to access them online.
