The ONE.SURGERY project was originally created in March 2018 by Saqib Noor, a British orthopaedic surgeon who recently completed higher surgical training in Birmingham, UK. After various experiences in low resource settings over the past ten years, publishing his personal diaries and commencing fellowship training, Saqib began this project to create a unifying platform to further support the global surgery movement.

ONE.SURGERY is now run by a growing international team passionate about surgery and improving standards of care worldwide. Using a combination of surgical experience in austere settings, web technology and story telling, One.Surgery hopes to empower, inspire and enlighten all those believing in the same vision.

With the multitude of organisations and phenomenal projects currently being undertaken throughout the world, One.Surgery believes in bringing these voices together, with a particular focus on listening to and supporting the most important stakeholders in all global surgery projects – the patients and those who dutifully provide surgical care to them on a daily basis.

One.Surgery Principles

Universal healthcare
We believe every person in the world should have access to universal, safe surgery. There is just too much imbalance currently that needs addressing urgently.
Working together
There are many hundreds of organisations all contributing in their great and small ways to the massive problems at hand. We believe we all have a role to play in achieving our goals, supporting each other along the way.
Ease of use
This platform has been designed to be as easy to use as possible, especially in low resource settings. It has been designed by surgeons to make it as powerful and user-friendly as possible.
Free to access
We are committed to providing free services to our global surgery projects. The costs of developing surgical services are expensive enough. We are not one of them.
Ethical funding
We are not seeking profits. We promise to always work efficiently, producing a world class platform with the bare minimum overheads. We will never ask our users for money but seek philanthropic partners and ethical sources of funding to sustain us. It’s amazing what can be achieved with a few dollars fuelled by passion.
Maintaning standards
It is crucial to us that we abide by a high ethical standard in our work, maintaining integrity, dignity, privacy, confidentiality and security in all we do.
