- How can high-level reports translate to local relevance and action in LMICs?
- What is the role of international NGOs & academic collaborations in surgical & anesthetic capacity building?
- What are potential strategies for increasing the role of allied health professionals to increase access to surgical services?
Since 2010, Global Partners in Anesthesia & Surgery (GPAS) and partners have hosted three conferences to help promote harmonization among global surgery and anesthesia efforts in Uganda. The upcoming Fourth Conference on Innovation & Collaboration for Surgical Disease in Uganda will bring together key stakeholders to strategize how to increase access to high-quality surgical and perioperative services in Uganda. The conference will take place September 25-26 in Entebbe, Uganda with pre and post conference workshops and sub group meetings.
Ahead of the conference we hope to initiate this online pre-conference forum to facilitate discussion among conference participants, interested parties who cannot attend, and the public health community.
There are three sub-themes that will be discussed at the 2015 conference (Listed above). Please add questions, commentary or resources to help generate productive discussion in these areas. These comments will be used to guide further dialogue at the conference. Thank you for your participation.
