Watch the conference presentations
This is the first time that the GSF conference will take the format of a two day conference, with this year’s theme aiming to address tough challenges for surgery - the surgical care of the young.
The aim of the GSF conference is three fold:
- Firstly, to inform about global needs in surgery.
- Secondly, to provide information about how UK surgeons can be involved with surgical work, training and research in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs).
- Thirdly, to allow networking for surgeons, trainees and medical students interested in global surgery.
The theme for 2017 will be focused on children and young people's surgery because due to the fact that all surgical specialties deal with children's surgical conditions and most Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) have a demographic breakdown where nearly half of their populations are under 16.
We are delighted to have as official sponsors for GSF 2017: B Braun, Cure International and The Beit Trust
