What we do

Through partnerships with Southeast Asian and Pacific neighbours, our mission is to increase access to emergency and essential surgery and safe anaesthesia and improve the safety and quality of surgical and medical care, in low income countries. Our vision is that safe and timely surgical, medical and anaesthetic care is available and accessible to everyone who needs it.

Safe surgery and anaesthesia are necessary to effectively treat much of the global burden of non-communicable diseases and injuries. Yet, five billion of the world's population do not have access to emergency and essential surgical care, and the poorest third of the world's population receive only 3.5% of all surgical operations.

RACS Global Health provides specialist medical education, training, capacity development and medical aid to sixteen countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Visiting teams and in-country personnel provide clinical mentoring and education to the national medical workforces and deliver train-the-trainer programs to strengthen the capacity of national health services in the region.

Volunteer health professionals provide essential surgical and medical services to people who are unable to access or afford treatment. While working overseas, our volunteer specialists work closely with the local doctors and health staff to share their skills and expertise. We aim to support the local health care systems to develop so they can provide better medical services into the future.
