Access to Hope Care Training Surgery

Changes Everything.

Five billion people do not have access to safe, timely, and affordable surgical care worldwide, and every two seconds someone dies from a surgically preventable disease.

Together, we can solve this crisis. With the support of ReSurge donors, we provide free reconstructive surgical care and strengthen surgical systems in low-income countries to give people with treatable conditions a chance to lead fuller, healthier lives.

Why Reconstructive Surgery?

30% of the global burden of disease is due to surgical conditions — three times more than Malaria, TB, and HIV/AIDS combined. By partnering with promising reconstructive surgeons in low-income countries, we are changing lives and building a brighter future for all.

Our capacity building programs and funding for direct patient care give surgeons in these low-income regions the tools they need to positively impact their community with life-transforming care. 

What We Do

Our mission is to build, scale, and sustain reconstructive surgical capacity to provide life-changing care to those with the greatest need. We envision a world where safe, timely, and affordable reconstructive surgical care is accessible to all. 

Our programmatic and advocacy work strengthens developing surgical systems in low-income countries to transform lives and strengthen economies.

We empower surgical teams in low-income countries by providing hands-on and virtual training. Our medical volunteers are the world’s leading experts from partner institutions like Stanford University, Johns Hopkins, and dozens of others. Our model provides a sustainable way to support surgeons and give them the tools they need to change lives.

We provide direct surgical care for individuals with the greatest need at no cost to the patient by funding our local Surgical Outreach Partners. Our trained and certified local Surgical Outreach Partners are best suited to find, treat, and connect with families, often from remote low-resource areas, who need treatment the most.

As one of the founders in the global surgery movement, we partner and engage with governments and multilateral organizations to make global surgery a priority on the broader global health agenda. Additionally, we address issues like gender equity in global surgery through our women’s empowerment programs.
