ALL-SAFE is an international collaboration of surgeons and scientists to teach surgeons in the low-resource setting to perform laparoscopic surgery without special training equipment and a physical teacher.

ALL-SAFE was selected as a Grand Prize Winner for the Global Surgical Training Challenge, a collaboration among Nesta Challenges, The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, MIT Solve, Appropedia Foundation, and Intuitive Foundation.

Because of the overwhelming success of these courses and the ALL-SAFE training system, WACS (West African College of Surgeons) President Prof Emmanual R. Ezeome announced that WACS would now adopt ALL-SAFE as its primary laparoscopic training platform and require it at its training sites.
