Welcome to MacGlObAS

Collaboration between the McMaster University Global Health Office and Departments of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Anesthesia, and Surgery

Global Surgery is "an area of study, research, practice, and advocacy, that seeks to improve health outcomes and achieve health equity for all people who need surgical and anesthesia care, with a special emphasis on underserved populations and populations in crisis. It uses collaborative, cross-sectoral, and transnational approaches and is a synthesis of population-based strategies with individual surgical and anesthesia care"
