Advocacy is at the heart of the G4 Alliance mission. We know that advocacy works, but we also know that it works best when we're all striving towards the same goal, led by the same vision and bearing the same message.
Together, we've raised the banner of surgery at the Universal Health Coverage Forum, UN High-Level Political Forum, the UN General Assembly, the World Health Assembly. We've brought surgery to events on maternal health, road traffic injuries, Universal Health Coverage and women's equality. Garnering support from policymakers and influencers is critical to the success of our mission, and the more people they hear about global surgery, the better!
As a G4 member, a partner, a global health stakeholder, or a passionate individual, you can join us in advocacy - in fact, we need YOU as an advocate to make a difference!
