Asia-Pacific surgeons seek your help with essential CME

Help support continuing medical education for Asia-Pacific surgeons by donating your used copies of the ANZ Journal of Surgery, World Journal of Surgery or other appropriate journals and making an annual donation of AU $200 to cover the international postage.

Our surgical colleagues in Papua New Guinea, the Pacific Islands, Timor-Leste and Myanmar are hungry for access to the ANZ Journal of Surgery, but for many people in these low and middle income countries, the subscription fees are unaffordable.

We are seeking 12 sponsors to commit to donating their used copies of the ANZ Journal of Surgery and other appropriate medical journals to the overseas institutions listed below, for a minimum of one year.

Your donation will have a significant multiplying effect as the journals will be consigned to the hospital libraries, ensuring that all staff and trainees can access these valuable educational resources.

Please contact RACS Global Health on +61 3 9249 1211 or [email protected] to participate. We look forward to hearing from you! Institutions in need of your support:
