The Canadian Network for International Surgery (CNIS) is a Canadian registered charity with an incredible history. For almost 20 years, CNIS has been teaching lifesaving surgical, obstetrical and nursing skills in sub-Saharan Africa. The current focus of our programs is on maternal health in rural communities –providing women, particularly expecting mothers with access to better healthcare. To date, over 25,000 African healthcare workers have been educated in lifesaving skills, preparing them to work in rural communities.
Join us –Sharing Skills, Saving Lives.

                                          WHAT WE DO

We save lives by creating educational curriculum specific to the needs of low income counties. Canadian surgeons, obstetricians and nurses are trained to teach these courses, and they volunteer their time in travelling to Africa to share lifesaving skills with healthcare students.


CNIS has implemented life-saving courses in 8 African countries, including Tanzania, Ethiopia, and Uganda, as well as Guyana and Haiti in the Caribbean.
