Canadian Network for International Surgery (CNIS) wishes to invite fellow international surgical associations to participate and provide inputs as to how we can effectively work together and collaborate in assisting low income countries in transferring skills, knowledge and technology as well as to provide necessary surgical training with the purpose of creating sustainability in environments where there is considerable lack of medical infrastructure.
