Let me return thanks to Dr Ozgediz for sharing his and his colleagues' successful experience of the last 5 years in capacity building with a surgical training program in Uganda. Indeed, the need for global surgical care is enormous. As Dr Ozgediz appropriately highlighted, volunteerism and advocacy will be the first steps in this long journey. However, I do want to take this opportunity to present the principles for the expansion of surgical and medical care that I believe to be important as we move forward:
