Training and Scholarships

We help local surgeons serve humanity

We operate in countries where demand for hospital care is overwhelming. More than 90% of the children who currently cannot access safe and timely surgery live in low resource country where, on average, there is one specialist surgeon for over 3 million children. In many cases, that specialist number is zero. 

Children worldwide deserve better, which is why we provide surgical scholarships as well as specialized training for paediatric surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses and biomedical engineers. 

We believe in building sustainable surgical capacity and stronger healthcare systems. Working closely with our partners, we ensure local surgeons have the right knowledge and tools to care for their nation’s children.

Surgical Scholarships
