This book provides a focused resource on how cardiac surgery capacity can be developed and how it assists in the sustainable development and strengthening of associated health systems. Background is provided on the extent of the problems that are experienced in many nations with suggestions for how suitable frameworks can be developed to improve cardiac healthcare provision. Relevant aspects of governance, financial modelling and disease surveillance are all covered. Guidance is also given on how to found and nurture cardiac surgery curriculum and residency programs.

Global Cardiac Surgery Capacity Development in Low and Middle Income Countries provides a practically applicable resource on how to treat cardiac patients with limited resources. It identifies the key challenges and presents strategies on how these can be managed, therefore making it a critical tool for those involved in this field.


Dr. Jacques Kpodonu is a cardiovascular surgeon specializing in global health system innovation with an emphasis on addressing rheumatic heart disease and currently a faculty member at Harvard Medical School and an adjunct professor of surgery at the University of Ghana. Dr. Kpodonu's interests lie in biomedical discoveries, modernizing the operating room via novel design and growing the global capacity of cardiac surgeons especially in emerging countries with his work in global cardiac surgery. In addition to writing medical textbooks and his research work, Dr. Kpodonu is a key opinion leader in design of advanced hybrid cardiac surgical rooms and biomedical innovation and is passionate in advocating for the use of telehealth servicesespecially in African nations. Dr. Kpodonu is frequently quoted in the Orange County Register, American Health Journal, and holds leadership positions with the Society Thoracic Surgeons and the American College of Cardiology. Based in Boston, he sits on the diversity and inclusion committee for the American College of Cardiology and the Society of Thoracic Surgery and has helped to raise millions of dollars to finance the construction of advanced robotic hybrid operating room both here in the USA and in Africa.
