Abstract:

The Global Alliance for Surgical, Obstetric, Trauma and Anaesthesia Care (G4 Alliance, http://www.theg4alliance.org/) is the preeminent global surgery advocacy organization (1) dedicated to eliminating disparities in surgical care around the world. A coalition of over 60 non-profit organizations, professional societies, academic centers, and other groups, the G4 Alliance represents civil society interests in global surgery from the grassroots to the international level. The organization convenes its membership to address common interests and concerns, facilitates knowledge and resource sharing, builds consensus and alignment, and conducts outreach with multilateral organizations, donors, and other global health programs and advocacy initiatives. In a sector characterized by diverse actors and fragmentation of care delivery, scholarship, and funding (2,3), the G4 Alliance provides communication and coordination around a common surgical and health system strengthening agenda. The purpose of this paper is to highlight the multiple organizations that specifically contribute to neurosurgical advocacy within the G4 Alliance.
