The G4 Global Action Plan

In July 2015, the G4 Alliance and its partners began a global consultative process designed to collect input and build consensus for a Global Action Plan that will guide the G4 Alliance's advocacy, policy implementation, and resource mobilization strategy in support of global surgical, obstetric, trauma and anaesthesia care around the world.

The consultation process included:

  • a series of monthly webinars
  • an online consultation process
  • in-person regional consultative meetings and launch events

Our Goal

  • A common platform for international and local stakeholders to contribute to the development of a civil society response and global accountability framework to support the implementation of the recently passed WHO resolution on surgical and anaesthesia care, as well as country-level efforts to integrate surgical care as part of health systems strengthening efforts. 

Why NOw?

History is Made: May 22, 2015
WHO resolution 68/31 on "Strengthening emergency and essential surgical care and anaesthesia as a component of universal health coverage" was unanimously approved during 68th World Health Assembly.

This historic resolution represents an important step towards opening the door to national capacity building, health systems strengthening, and overall greater prioritization of essential surgical and anaesthesia care for those in need.

Civil society actors (i.e. non-governmental organizations and private sector) will play an important role in supporting efforts to adopt this resolution at the country-level, and will contribute important knowledge and expertise to the development of guidelines and targets as well as a global accountability framework. The G4 Alliance is supportive of these efforts and seeks to provide a platform for experts and stakeholders from around the world to come together to develop a plan for supporting global advocacy and policy efforts.
