Hosted by the Rockefeller Foundation in Bellagio, Italy


The Lancet Commission on Global Surgery Bellagio Implementation Meeting was held February 9-13, 2015 at the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center in Bellagio, Italy on Lake Como.


The purpose of this meeting was to develop a plan to support the implementation of the Commission’s recommendations in order to generate progress towards universal access to safe, affordable surgical and anesthesia care when needed. We convened a small group of experts from around the world with experience in generating health improvements at local, national and global levels. These Bellagio Commissioners discussed how best to:


  • Engage with stakeholders at local, national and global levels

  • Support policy change to improve delivery of surgical and anesthesia care

  • Develop funding support to improve delivery of surgical and anesthesia care
