We will address the rising worldwide surgical disease burden in low-resource settings both domestically and internationally by mobilizing a community of surgical leaders to engage in international partnerships, implement quality improvement and training protocols, increase awareness, and establish the role of the GGSA in the global surgical landscape by:

// Working toward the expansion of opportunities for people to lead healthy and productive lives;

// Promoting research, education and advocacy in order to achieve health equity for all people requiring surgical care;

// Educating, inspire, and unite researchers through engagement and mentorship in global surgery.
