The G4 Alliance is committed to advocating for the neglected surgical patient and is driven by a mission to provide a collective voice for increased access to safe, essential, and timely surgical, obstetric, trauma, and anaesthesia care as part of universal health coverage.
Universal Access to Quality Surgical, Obstetric, Trauma, and Anaesthesia Care
The G4 Alliance exists to increase global political priority for surgical and anaesthesia care. The G4 Alliance also works to mobilize resources to help provide access to safe surgical care for patients in need. They are comprised of more than 80 organizations working in over 160 countries, united in advocating for the neglected surgical patient.
Over two billion people lack access to basic surgical services worldwide with less than 4% of all operations being delivered to the world’s poorest countries. Marginalized populations continue to suffer due to a lack of trained health care providers, inadequate infrastructure, disproportionate out of pocket healthcare costs, and lack of prioritization of surgical, obstetric, trauma and anaesthesia care as part of national health plans and more widely, the global agenda.
