鶹ýHealth Outreach Program for Equity in Global Surgery

Serving. Teaching. Learning.

The 鶹ýHealth Outreach Program for Equity in Global Surgery (鶹ýH.O.P.E.) is committed to creating a global learning space—providing surgeons with opportunities to teach and learn from one another to better serve all patients and communities.

Catering to all specialties and career stages, 鶹ýH.O.P.E. serves as a platform for surgeons to explore and engage in volunteer opportunities both domestically and internationally. With a strong emphasis on collaboration and community-based programming, 鶹ýH.O.P.E. strives to improve surgical access and provide optimal surgical care to medically underserved communities through surgical service and education. Please use this site to explore opportunities for engagement with our program and how you can make a lasting impact in the lives of surgical patients worldwide.

The 鶹ýis evolving its international outreach efforts through the rebranding of Operation Giving Back (OGB) to 鶹ýHealth Outreach Program for Equity in Global Surgery. While continuing to facilitate individual surgical volunteerism, 鶹ýH.O.P.E. marks a strategic expansion beyond OGB's previous scope to focus on establishing equal global partnerships and sustainable programs. By collaborating with institutions worldwide to create shared learning spaces and opportunities, 鶹ýH.O.P.E. aims to exchange knowledge across borders and specialties to collectively advance the field. This refined approach aligns with the program's commitment to serve, teach, and learn for the betterment of patients and communities everywhere. The rebrand signifies an important step in realizing ACS's vision for health equity through global collaboration and capacity building.

Humanitarian Efforts in the Middle East

Although the 鶹ýdoes not deploy volunteers in conflict zones, we are willing to support and promote organizations that are active in the region who may need volunteers, supplies, or other support. We encourage you to email us the contact information and details for any governmental agencies or NGOs that can be added to our list of entities to be supported in the region.
