What We Do
We Provide Safe Surgery for Those in Need Around the World
Five billion people in the world lack access to safe surgery and two billion lack access to even the most basic surgical care. Each year, this lack of access to surgical care results in the deaths of 1.2 million people.
Christian Health Service Corps Surgeons provide emergency and corrective surgeries for many conditions children and adults suffer in poor communities.
We Train Surgeons
Simply providing surgery will not meet the vast need of surgical care in poor regions of the world. Because of this we have made training surgeons a big part of our mission.
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.
