Preparing instruments for surgery. Theatre assistant organising surgical instruments prior to an operation. Many types of forceps are seen here, as the different sizes and shapes are designed for specific roles in an operation. It is important that all the surgical instruments are sterilized before use, to avoid transmitting disease micro-organisms that cause infections. Photographed at St. Mary's Hospital in Lacor, Gulu, Uganda.
