About us

Infections in surgery are an important cause of morbidity and are frequently associated with poor prognosis, particularly in high-risk patients.

Given the complexity of the treatment of infections in surgical patients a multi-disciplinary approach should be crucial, although it is not always possible in real-life clinical practice.

The Global Alliance for Infections in Surgery is an independent alliance promoted in 2016 by the World Society of Emergency Surgery (WSES), for a cohesive and global approach to promoting research and education in the field of infections in surgery.

The Global Alliance for Infections in Surgery aims to include all professionals involved in this battle, including epidemiologists and healthcare specialists, infectious diseases specialists, hospital pharmacologists, microbiologists, intensivists and surgeons.

The mission of Infections in Surgery is to educate health care providers promoting the standards of care in managing surgical infections worldwide.

Our values are scientific rigour and ethical accountability.
