SHARE YOUR VOICE AT ONE.SURGERY
ISSUE 9: SURGICAL LOCKDOWN
Voices of One Surgery is a free, periodical, not-for-profit magazine dedicated to global surgery and is part of the One Surgery project. One Surgery is run by a growing international team passionate about surgery and improving standards of care worldwide. We aim to unite and promote the advocacy efforts for global surgery by providing a platform for sharing ideas, projects and stories. Through a combination of story-telling, interviews and web technology, we aim to address the plight of unequal access to surgical care.
After successfully producing our first eight issues, we hereby call for articles for our next issue titled: “SURGICAL LOCKDOWN”. With the current Covid-19 pandemic that has shutdown economies, restricted travel, and overwhelmed healthcare systems, this issue of Voices of One Surgery is dedicated to the frontline staff all over the world, sharing their experiences and stories. Key workers globally have been sacrificing their own health and well being, with the physical and emotional burdens that entails, to unite and treat patients suffering from this pandemic as well as caring for other people in desperate need. This issue of Voices of One Surgery is dedicated to these incredible heroes.
If you are passionate about the global surgery movement, have unique stories, projects or ideas to share with the world, please send a full article to email@example.com no later than 10th May, 2020 23:59 GMT.
