HOW WE GIVE BACK
ASAPS members are passionate about using their skills and experience to give back to the community.
Collaboration can be a powerful thing, especially when it’s put to such a good cause as the partnership between ASAPS and Interplast Australia and New Zealand.
Interplast sends teams of volunteer plastic and reconstructive surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses and allied health professionals to provide life-changing surgery and medical training in 17 countries across the Asia Pacific region.
According to the Lancet Commission on Global Surgery, an estimated 99 million people each year in Asia and Oceania go without the surgical attention they urgently need.
Through the partnership with ASAPS, Interplast seeks to recruit new surgeons to its program and to provide financial support to aid more people in areas where the help is needed most.
