Advocacy has been a vital part of InciSioN since its inception . In 2015, InciSioN started Global Surgery Day on May, 25th as a global awareness day on Global Surgery, in the light of the passing of the WHO Resolution WHA68.15 “Strengthening Emergency and Essential Surgical Care and Anaesthesia as a Component of Universal Health Coverage”. Over the years we have continued our efforts in advocating for attaining better health outcomes and health equity through timely access to affordable safe surgical, anaesthesia and obstetric care throughout the world. We have been working on several platforms aiming to raise awareness and improve the capabilities and policies globally. Our projects range from those targeting the medical students, trainees, surgeons, and other healthcare providers, to the general public, other nonprofit organizations, to stakeholders & government officials.
Side by side with the other InciSioN Teams and National Working Groups (NWG) we have been, and still are actively leading campaigns and different projects to achieve our main goal of improving the surgical care services worldwide. Our advocacy campaigns are open to all and we welcome you to join us in raising awareness for Global Surgery!
