Advocacy is a key part of InciSioN Australia’s work. We aim to raise awareness about the need for increased access to safe surgical and anaesthetic care among our Australasian colleagues and those around the world. We are proud to be affiliated with InciSioN Network and to take part in the inspiring advocacy campaigns that they coordinate throughout the year.

InciSioN’s main advocacy campaign is Global Surgery Day on 25th. InciSioN started this campaign in light of the passing of the WHO Resolution WHA68.15 “Strengthening Emergency and Essential Surgical Care and Anaesthesia as a Component of Universal Health Coverage.” In addition to this, InciSioN supports advocacy campaigns throughout the year, including International Women’s Day, International Day for Maternal Health and Rights, World Anesthesia Day, World Trauma Day and Universal Health Coverage Day.
