The Global Surgical and Medical Support Group (GSMSG) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing medical relief to communities in conflict zones around the world, while also developing sustainable long-term medical solutions for their healthcare needs.  By educating and training indigenous medical personnel in the latest standards of care, GSMSG hopes to build the foundation for a lasting self-sufficient healthcare system. 

GSMSG provides all of these services and more regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, or creed and is free of cost to those receiving our support.

about us

GSMSG is currently active in Iraq, where millions of men, women, and children have taken refuge since fleeing their native homes following the invasion of ISIS. Many have suffered life- threatening illnesses, torture and injuries. The local healthcare system is overwhelmed and under-resourced, leaving a backlog of patients in desperate need of care. 

For the last three years, GSMSG has been the only full-spectrum provider of medical care and training, ranging from combat medicine to cardiothoracic surgery.  We have sent teams of doctors, surgeons, and medics from the US, UK, Norway, Canada, and Australia to work alongside and train local medical personnel in Iraq and to provide much-needed medical relief to their local and refugee populations. While there, our teams have trained over 1000 local doctors, surgeons and medics on the best practices and the highest standard of care. By providing local medical personnel with the tools, training, and the infrastructure necessary to administer effective medical relief, GSMSG is helping to build the foundation for lasting self-sufficient healthcare system.
