GHC24 is an annual event bringing together a community of students, trainees, clinicians, researchers, and faculty from across health professions and disciplines to share knowledge.

We hope that you will join us at GHC24 for a conversation on “Global Surgery: Addressing a Neglected Global Health Crisis” with conference co-Chairs Dr. Jan Christilaw and Dr. Faizal Haji. The conference will host a wide range of speakers from around the world, giving us the opportunity discuss the often-overlooked challenges in global surgical care, addressing issues from care inequalities to the impact of education and training on building surgical capacity, and exploring how these factors specifically affect the care of children and women worldwide.
