IGSS 2021

We are delighted to welcome you to the fourth edition of the annual InciSioN Global Surgery Symposium (IGSS)! Last year, due to the worldwide restrictions brought on by the spread of the SARS-Cov2 virus, our planning committee saw an opportunity to adapt. Thus, IGSS 2020 was the first iteration of the conference to be done virtually in its entirety to great success. This year, with the well-being of the international community in mind, we have decided that our beloved conference will be hosted virtually once again!

WHO WE ARE

Why Global Surgery? Why InciSioN?


Five billion people worldwide lack access to safe surgical care when needed, resulting in over 17 million preventable deaths each year and further responsible for one-third (28-32%) of the global burden of disease. Annually, 313 million surgical procedures take place around the world, yet an additional 143 million additional interventions and 2.28 million additional surgeons, anaesthesiologists, and obstetricians (SAO) are needed to cover the unmet need.

To scale up access to safe surgical, anaesthesia, and obstetric care for all, inclusion of future generations of health professionals, public health specialists, and policymakers from the start of global surgery discussions and interventions is essential.

InciSioN is a nonprofit organization representing over 5000 students, trainees, and early career physicians around the world, who are passionate about Global Surgery. We work towards the common goal of access to safe, timely and affordable surgical healthcare for all. Our work rests on three pillars of Advocacy, Education, and Research.
