The World Health Organisation (WHO) is making efforts to see that the global problem of burns is accorded importance and attention as a global public health problem.
A major part of WHO’s strategy at this point in time is to standardize data collection allowing for a more rational prioritization of burn prevention needs. In order to achieve that, WHO has developed the Global Burn Registry (GBR).
The GBR data collection form takes approximately 5 minutes to complete, and is filled out during the non-urgent phase of burn care. This simple, check-box driven form has been developed by the WHO and a global network of experts and has been pilot tested in over 60 health facilities across 30 countries.
You can participate by registering your hospital on the WHO website.
