Registrations for GlobalSurg 2 data collection are now closed but if you are looking for an opportunity to be part of our next publication we are currently recruiting validators for the GlobalSurg 2 project

All validators will receive citation as collaborators on GlobalSurg 2 publications.

Message for all local leads: please advertise the position at your centres and inform us of interest ([email protected])
