We are Improving surgical outcomes through collaborative research!

SETTING THE RESEARCH AGENDA
GlobalSurg & The NIHR Global Health Research Unit on Global Surgery are working together through annual research prioritisation workshops to set the research agenda based on patient need in LMIC.

COHORT & FEASIBILITY STUDIES
GlobalSurg conduct international cohort studies, generating crucial background data for feasibility studies and trials carried out in NIHR Global Health Research Unit on Global Surgery LMIC hub countries.

EVIDENCE TO IMPROVE SURGICAL OUTCOMES
The NIHR Global Health Research Unit on Global Surgery is conducting international randomised controlled trials in selected low and middle income partner hub countries. GlobalSurg studies are open to any hospitals, any where.

BUILDING SUSTAINABLE RESEARCH FOR THE FUTURE
Developing trans-continental randomised controlled trials and national guidelines to build sustainable research capacity and implement change in surgical practice in LMICs.

FOSTERING THE SURGICAL LEADERS OF TOMORROW
The NIHR Global Health Research Unit on Global Surgery is supporting fully funded Fellowships for surgeons in LMIC as well as providing open access training resources to support surgical researchers all around the world.

... But we are making a difference

Research to support safe surgery is urgently needed to ensure that the benefits of surgical care are realised across the world and the risk of adverse outcomes minimised.

Education and Training forms the backbone of delivering the objectives of the GSU through developing bespoke training, strengthening research and research management capacity.

Improving outcomes for patients is central to the work of the GSU, where patients experience help design and implement clinical trials and studies in LMICs.

A key aim of the GSU is the empowerment of frontline surgeons to bring about change for their patients, whilst advocating to policy makers for high level change.

Bringing together surgeons, researchers and policy makers to set the local research agenda according to patient need in LMICs and ensuring all patients have the opportunity to take part in our research.
