A Global Survey on Neocolonialism in Global Surgery

The Transformational Dialogues coalition has launched a Global Survey to identify the prevalence and types of neocolonialism impacting individuals involved in surgery and anesthesia in both low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and high-income countries (HICs)—and possible solutions to address this. The survey has been developed as an anonymous way for individuals— including non-clinicians—to be able to share their experiences.


Recognizing the power imbalances and structures prevalent within the global surgery community, the Transformational Dialogues group wanted to create a space for individuals to be able to share their experiences in an anonymous and safe space.


The survey –  titled “Transformational Dialogues in Neocolonialism in Global Surgery: A Survey to Evaluate the Burden of Inequities, Solutions and Barriers to Implementations of Solutions” aims to ascertain the prevalence and different types of neocolonialism in global surgery as well understanding the impacts of neocolonialism and possible solutions. The survey is available in Arabic, English, French, Mandarin, Portuguese, and Spanish. 


The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and can be saved and returned to at a later time. Please complete the survey or share it to your networks using the link below. https://bit.ly/3xWKUQR


Thank you to Dr. Justina O. Seyi-Olajide for leading this work
