Women in Surgery

Home » What We Do » Women in Surgery

At Mission: Restore, we recognize the vital role that women play in healthcare. With five billion people lacking access to essential surgical care and an additional 2.2 million surgical specialists needed to bridge the gap, empowering female surgeons is not just about gender equality; it’s a strategic imperative to meet the pressing surgical needs of our world. We celebrate, train, and support female surgeons. We encourage you to donate and join our mission.

#WomenInGlobalSurgery Campaign

Our #WomenInGlobalSurgery campaign is a call to action and solidarity. We firmly believe that closing the gender gap in surgery is one of the most impactful and effective ways to address the global surgical crisis. By celebrating, training, and supporting female surgeons, we are not only advancing gender equality but also amplifying our collective impact in meeting the surgical needs of underserved populations worldwide. Join the movement with your donations.

Supporting East African Female Surgeons

To further our commitment, we have launched a crowdfunding campaign to support inspirational East African female surgeons. These women are at the forefront of expanding surgical capacity and increasing access to surgical care in their local communities. We aim to raise $15,000 to provide training and support to these female surgeons across Africa.

Double the Impact With RealSelf’s Matching Grant

We are proud to partner with RealSelf, who shares our dedication to empowering female surgeons. RealSelf is offering a 1:1 matching grant for all donations, effectively doubling the impact of your contribution. Your support will enable us to train and support twice the number of female surgeons, further accelerating our mission to close the surgical care gap.

Fostering Long-Term, Sustainable Changes

Our strategy for promoting long-term, sustainable change involves recruiting, training, and supporting female surgeons to become leaders in their communities. Research shows that women are more likely to remain engaged in their communities and stay in their surgical roles long-term. By investing in female surgeons, we contribute to the continuity and stability of healthcare delivery in underserved, low-income areas.
