The debate on the progress in neurosurgery around the world is very interesting because of the achievements already accomplished in the different fields of neurosurgery, largely thanks to the progress in neurosciences and the support of new technologies. However, despite this progress, there are some frustrations; insufficiency of this progress to solve many of our daily problems and the current state of neurosurgery in developing countries are just two. The best achievements in medicine are…

Global Neurosurgery: The Unmet Need.
The history of neurosurgery in Bolivia and pediatric neurosurgery in Santa Cruz de la Sierra
TLDR
Presently, neurosurgery in Bolivia is similar to that seen in developed countries, and government programs should dedicate more financial support to establish specialized healthcare centers where the management of complex central nervous system lesions could be offered.
Challenges and opportunities to advance pediatric neuro-oncology care in the developing world
TLDR
The current state of pediatric neuro-oncology care in the developing world is described, to address the current and future needs of the field, and to help guide professional societies’ efforts to contribute in a more holistic and multidisciplinary manner.
Costs and benefits of neurosurgical intervention for infant hydrocephalus in sub-Saharan Africa.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that neurosurgical intervention has a cost/DALY averted comparable to other surgical interventions that have been evaluated, as well as a favorable benefit-cost ratio.
Implications of patient-borne costs associated with pediatric neurosurgical care in eastern Africa.
OBJECTIVE Pediatric neurosurgery can be highly cost-effective even in the developing world, but delivery of these services is hampered by resource limitations at the levels of both health care

Technology and neurosurgery in developing countries: experience and present situation in Morocco.
TLDR
Neurosurgery in developing countries can be promoted if the first working neurosurgeons take up their responsibilities as pioneers and find in the local conditions the necessary factors to promote neurosurgery and to integrate it into the health care development of their country.
African Neurosurgery: Current Situation, Priorities, and Needs
TLDR
Overcoming problems will require that African neurosurgeons target a number of priorities, i.e., devising local training programs and obtaining the necessary equipment, to ensure long-term results.
Pattern of Cerebral Aneurysms in Morocco: Review of the Concept of Their Rarity in Developing Countries: Report of 200 Cases
TLDR
The analysis of the clinical series and the results of the epidemiological surveys show that the incidence of cerebral aneurysms in Morocco has doubled every 5 years, and this findings confirm that cerebral anewaterysms are not rare in Morocco.

TLDR
The systematic research of the aneurysms at the brain base level has allowed us to identify a case situated at the level of the internal carotide at the origin of the anterior cerebral artery, but the few brains injected did not permit us to get into sound statistical conclusions.
