The objectives of the PABS are:
  • To improve the overall care of the many burn victims in Africa
  • To ensure adequate training of practitioners that support it
  • To sensitize governments and target populations on burns in Africa - a scourge which requires effective public education and awareness.
  • To cooperate, with efforts of the international community, so that management of burns in Africa can be in line with the WHO's guidelines and recommendations which have accepted burns as a public health problem.
