Collectively, we are 70+ organizations, with dozens of years of experience and mobilizing millions of dollars annually to build surgical capacity around the world through:
- Rigorous research and producing the evidence needed for effective advocacy and implementation;
- Understanding and galvanizing the tools, environment, standards and human capital available in low-resource settings;
- Implementing surgical trainings and related human resources for health (HRH) programs tailored to local contexts to strengthen health systems and increase access to surgical care for generations to come; and
- Providing safe, life-changing surgical care to patients in need
