The Centre for Global Surgery

The divisions of trauma and general surgery at the MUHC have recognized the impact of injury and acute surgical disease, and have been committed to addressing this major problem. Our ultimate goal is to reduce injury and acute surgical disease-related morbidity and mortality in low- and middle-income countries through local capacity building involving a multidisciplinary approach.

Specifically, we are currently involved in education programs, research programs, on-site clinical work, exchange programs, and trauma system development in several East African nations and most recently in Haiti. These programs have been implemented through the development of strong local alliances with universities, hospitals, and governments, in the respective nations, setting the foundation for long-lasting partnerships with a common vision.
