ABOUT RESURGE INTERNATIONAL
ReSurge International provides life-changing surgical care that is safe, timely and affordable in developing countries, and develops surgical capacity to ensure the availability of year-round care. Founded in 1969 with Stanford University roots, ReSurge advances its mission in two ways: through surgical care and the ReSurge Global Training Program (RGTP).
ReSurge trains the next generation of reconstructive surgeons in Africa, Latin America and Asia; and works with them to create a sustainable care model; and together, they provide high-quality reconstructive surgical care to people living in poverty and in remote areas.

HOW IT WORKS
This partnership provides access to the most expert technical training, leadership development, and mentor support to the first generation of local women reconstructive surgeons in developing nations, and foster the building of essential networks required for safe surgical care.
Together we hope to change the landscape for women surgeons worldwide, enabling them to advance their careers and transform the lives of those in need of life-altering surgical care.
WHY IT MATTERS
When women do better, the world does better. In a study of 100 countries, The World Bank found that every 1 percent increase in the proportion of women with a secondary education raises a country’s per capita income growth. These gains are even stronger when a society actively welcomes women into the workforce.
