Welcome to the Surgical Research Society of Southern Africa (SRSSA)

The main objective of our society is to encourage and facilitate research in Southern Africa. Our membership includes representatives from the medical schools in South Africa and those in Botswana Zambia Zimbabwe. It is my privilege to serve as president for the next two years.

The objective of the SRSSA, as defined in the constitution, is “to provide for the interchange of information about research work related to surgery”. In its present form the society provides a platform to network and collaborate in research four countries in southern Africa.
