This website has been developed by the International Surgery Committee of the Canadian Association of General Surgeons, to encourage and facilitate the participation of Canadian surgeons, anesthetist, residents, nurses and support staff, in the important work of improving the quality and availability of surgical care in developing countries where such care is often unavailable.

Our Canadian Partners in International Surgery include:

Canadian Network of International Surgery

CNIS works cooperatively with African surgical and obstetrical training programs to develop short, intense, practical courses for training doctors, clinical officers and midwives.  Over 30 Canadian surgeons are trained to instruct in these programs which are conducted jointly with African partners.  CNIS has developed an exceptional model for effectively training life saving skills where they are most needed.
