We at Sadanah know that to collaborate is to be at the heart of the future.

We partner with committed communities to empower locally and inspire globally.


Our partnership with the Sadanah Trauma & Surgical Initiative and Incision aims to build sustainable access to surgical care through education and research in low resource settings.

Bolivian Trauma Initiative

An estimated 4.8 to 5.8 million global deaths are attributable annually to injuries, with 90% occurring in low- and middle-income countries like Bolivia. Effective trauma systems lead to improved patient survival, with up to a 20% decrease in mortality and improved functional outcomes.

Our research in India is based in the rural community of Nanakpur, Haryana.

With the help of the All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) and Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education & Research (PGIMER,) we at Sadanah are training first responders, advocating for Nanakpurs community health workers, and collaborating with the local government in Haryana to improve access to trauma and surgical care.

Our Initiative

 In an effort to reduce injury morbidity and mortality within the Bolivian population, we at Sadanah facilitate the creation of evidence-based policy and interventions for injury prevention and trauma care quality improvements.

Empowering the Community

Traumatic injury is the leading cause of death in the United States for people between the ages of 1 and 44 years. First aid from bystanders has been shown to save lives.

He was right here, this is where he was laying. My father told me at 1:15, I will never forget, and the hurt in his voice, he said,

"son, somebody killed your son".

In Conjunction with the Sadanah Trauma and Surgical Initiative


Our Team at Sadanah has:


Conducted over 75 free Trauma First Responder Courses all over Chicago, training bystanders from different communities to take action in an event of a traumatic injury.


Trained over 1500 community members across Chicago, giving them the confidence, knowledge, and skills needed to provide rapid and effective care to trauma victims and empowering them to take an active role in caring for those affected by violence.


Instructed high school students from 9 different schools in 2 different school districts and plan to continue to incorporate additional schools in the future.
