Surgical teams are needed in vulnerable situations such as armed conflicts or in isolated areas, where medical staff are not available.
They are often needed on short notice and for short periods of time such as one to three months. The work consists primarily of general surgery. In some cases, the mission also involves training local personnel and performing surgical evaluations.
