By training, supporting, and empowering local medical personnel, Physicians for Peace creates self sufficiency, so individuals can receive timely surgical care in their own communities.
The exponential effect of
levering resources to
build local surgical capacity
goes beyond one training effort
After any training,
participating healthcare providers return to their communities equipped not only with
but also with
knowledge and skills
to share with their peers.
Training is supported by solid partnership and sustained support
Our volunteers and trainees become colleagues and continue their relationships until the local providers are confident in their new skills, feel empowered to enhance surgical care and are able to teach others and become trainers themselves.
