Abstract
Anecdotal evidence suggests that task-shifting or the redistribution of responsibilities from fully-trained surgeons to clinicians with fewer qualifications could become a major component of surgical care delivery in many low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs). Our goal was to summarise the scope of surgical task-shifting in LMICs through a systematic review of the medical literature.
