WHAT DO WE BELIEVE IN?
The World Surgical Infection Society is first and foremost an active group of surgeons, infection prevention control professionals, and other healthcare workers who are building practical, sustainable strategies to reduce surgical infections. We are engaging with, and supporting, local partners to help target the problems and create the solutions that are unique to each region, rather than trying to implement a "one size fits all" policy.
We are the first and, currently, only society working to integrate the surgical and infection prevention communities to provide enhance patient safety in low- and middle-income countries. As such, our core values center on diversity and a collaborative spirit; everyone involved in a project is guaranteed ownership of their work and a chance to voice their opinions .
