As part of the ongoing promotion for the recently completed CHEETAH trial, Co-Author Aneel Bhangu joined the BBC recently to discuss various aspects of the trial such as why the seemingly simple procedure of using surgical gloves during operations has been proven to dramatically reduce mortality rates through infection across Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs).

The recording below gives further insight into the reasoning behind the GSU’s undertaking of this global trial and the next steps for the dissemination of the trial results, including how the team plan to use the results to help change surgical policy on a global scale.
