ReSurge International is now a proud member of the Global Alliance for Surgical, Obstetric, Trauma and Anaesthesia Care (The G4 Alliance), a newly established advocacy-based organization dedicated to building political priority for surgical, obstetric, trauma and anaesthesia care as part of the global development agenda.
Committed to advocating for the neglected surgical patient, the G4A seeks to provide a collective voice for increased access to quality, timely and affordable surgical, obstetric, trauma and anaesthesia care as part of universal health coverage.
ReSurge will play a leading role in this advocacy coalition, which includes many esteemed international organizations from academia, the NGO community and medical societies. At its first board meeting in London last week, ReSurge representative and board member Sara Anderson was elected chair of its external affairs committee.
“ReSurge is very proud to be a member of this coalition and looks forward to advocating for the more than 2 billion people around the world who urgently need access to surgical care. For way too long, their voices have not been part of the global development agenda,” stated Anderson.
