What Is BESG?

The Bellagio Essential Surgery Group is a group committed to raising international awareness to increase access to surgical services in resource constrained settings in sub-Saharan Africa. Through cross-country collaborations, we work in partnership with governments and agencies committed to addressing the surgical burden of disease.

The BESG aims to increase access to essential surgical services by:

  1. advocating for the integration of surgery into health systems.
  2. networking surgical providers, public health practitioners, policy makers and researchers.
  3. promoting the development of projects, training programs and priority research.
