What We Do
We provide safe surgery where it's needed most.
Five billion people in the world lack access to safe surgery and two billion lack access to even the most basic surgical care, resulting in the deaths of 1.2 million people each year.
Christian Health Service Corps is expanding access to surgery across the world. We provide lifesaving emergency and corrective surgeries for many conditions children and adults suffer in poor communities.
We also train local surgeons to ensure more people have access to quality care for generations to come.

We Train Surgeons
Simply providing surgery will not meet the vast need of surgical care in poor regions of the world. Because of this, CHSC trains surgeons to greatly expand access to safe surgery.
CHSC surgeons serve as faculty in established training programs and residencies. Our surgeons not working in residency training programs still mentor local physicians to build their competency in basic surgeries. The end goal remains the same, raising up the next generation of surgeons in their own countries.
