For more than 36 years Interplast Australia & New Zealand has been sending volunteer teams of fully qualified, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses and allied therapists to developing countries in the Asia Pacific region to provide surgical treatment and training to local medical partners.
Our volunteers provide free treatment to people living with a disability due to congenital conditions such as cleft lip and cleft palate, or acquired conditions such as burns scar contractures. Treatment is targeted to people who would otherwise not be able to afford or access these services, and the majority are children.
Interplast works in 26 locations across 17 developing countries and has provided over 33,000 consultations, performed over 22,000 life-changing operations and trained countless medical staff.
The need is great - help us to do more!
