Mission Statement

The Global Surgical Consortium is committed to researching and compiling data on the key factors that affect access to safe surgery and anesthesia in low and middle income countries (LMICs), as well as quantifying exactly how much those factors influence surgical care in the identified countries. Our data raises awareness of critical shortages and deficiencies, while also revealing avenues for improved access, delivery, and safety of surgical care. In collaboration with dedicated global partners, GSC uses its data to help create strategies to address the global surgical crisis.
