Mission

To develop, implement, and evaluate strategies that improve surgical, pain and perioperative services and health equity in resource-poor settings.

 

The GPAS mission shifts away from more historically traditional trainee exchange, equipment donation, and clinical service delivery models and instead focuses on the following aspects of global surgery:

  • Workforce expansion
  • Improved service and education infrastructure
  • Increased collaborative research capacity 
  • Increased harmonization between other global health efforts
