Australasian Foundation for Plastic Surgery

The Australasian Foundation for Plastic Surgery (the Foundation) is a not-for-profit organisation that supports quality health outcomes for those involved with Plastic Surgery, with a particular focus on rural and remote communities. The Foundation's activities are focused on Innovation, Education and Research to support its Outreach programs.

One of the Foundation’s cor­ner­stone Out­reach pro­grams is to relieve the needs of per­sons suf­fer­ing from burns, wounds, trau­ma, dis­fig­ure­ment, sick­ness, dis­ease or oth­er med­ical con­di­tions. This is done by har­ness­ing the phil­an­thropic nature of Spe­cial­ist Plas­tic Sur­geons to deliv­er med­ical care in remote com­mu­ni­ties. The Foun­da­tion also edu­cates work­ers in remote com­mu­ni­ties to iden­ti­fy and/​or appro­pri­ate­ly triage per­sons in need of spe­cial­ist med­ical assistance.
