Burns can lead to drastic consequences of morbidity and mortality. Where preventive strategies have been adopted and adequate care is guaranteed, incidence and outcomes after burns have progressively improved, while in limited resource settings, they have not. Research can contribute to reducing the burden of burns, identifying risk groups, analyzing management and outcomes, promoting systematic data collection.
