After successfully producing our first eleven issues, we call for articles for our twelfth issue, titled “The Network Effect”. In this issue, we aim to discuss the growing global surgery movement and how our network is expanding, reaching further and faster to deliver safe, surgical care across the world.

Voices of One Surgery is a free, periodical, not-for-profit magazine dedicated to global surgery and is part of the One Surgery project.  One Surgery is run by a growing international team passionate about surgery and improving standards of care worldwide.

We aim to unite and promote the advocacy efforts for global surgery by providing a platform for sharing ideas, projects and stories. Through a combination of story-telling, interviews and web technology, we aim to address the plight of unequal access to surgical care.

If you are passionate about the global surgery movement, have unique stories, projects or ideas to share with the world, please send a full article to no later than the 15th April, 2021 23:59 GMT.


We aim to represent as many voices as possible from all over the world. Medical and allied health students, anaesthetists, surgeons, physicians, nurses, global surgery advocates, public health professionals, patients or anyone with an interest, passion or experience in global surgery are all welcome to submit articles.
