ReSurge International

Ever heard of a burn scar contracture?

It's a preventable condition that happens when second or third degree burned skin thickens and tightens up to close a wound. Without access to proper medical care for burns, people with severe burns often end up disabled due to these contractures.

Find out what the health impacts are for a burn survivor, depending on where the contracture is located, in this infographic.

The good news: the global burns crisis is solvable. Burn injuries and preventable and treatable. Share this infographic and find out how ReSurge International is helping by providing reconstructive surgery to repair burn scar contractures and building medical capacity in developing countries:
