How do we intend to achieve it?
Our mandate is to have our members act as effective catalysts for positive change in their environment to improve surgical care and health systems. PAWAS aims to create a platform for surgical pathology and women’s health concerns on the continent to be addressed. We are looking to provide mentorship, leadership and support for women in surgery, in surg training and those looking to join the profession. These members will in turn, develop and galvanize their communities. Members will use the group and its resources to educate, advocate and empower our women and the greater population. We will also use this forum to network, support each other and to support existing initiatives. We intend to develop and support collaborative projects aimed at improving surgical care. An equally critical task is to develop and foster collaborative research aimed at women’s health concerns and surgical pathology
