Advocacy projects



    • Translate global pediatric surgical statistics and Burden of Disease data into marketable messagesPaediatric surgeons working in resource-poor areas bear witness directly to the harms of delayed or absent surgical care on children, families, and communities.  As such, they are uniquely positioned as surgical child health advocates.


    • Identify ways to inform the public, and thereby lobby and fundraise for pediatric surgical diseases
