The International Collaboration for Essential Surgery’s (ICES) overall mission is to join forces with the international community to combat the rising tide of non-communicable diseases, particularly on conditions requiring surgical care. We believe that this intervention is critical to achieving Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 1 (Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger), 4 (Reduce child mortality), 5 (Improve maternal health), and 6 (Combat HIV/ AIDS) Our specific mission is to promote in a sustainable manner the effective provision of essential and low-cost surgical care that saves lives and prevents serious disability or life-threatening complications in poorly-resourced settings where there is most need.
