Dhananjaya Sharma

Head, Department of Surgery, NSCB Government Medical College Jabalpur (MP) India
I am a lifelong activist and campaigner for ‘appropriate technology for health-care in developing world’ and many of my 240 publications are on low-cost surgical solutions to achieve health equity for underserved populations. I consider myself truly blessed to be able to ‘make a difference’ and do God’s work, even though I don’t wear a Priest’s collar. I have learned during my travels as Honorary Visiting Professor/ Guest Faculty for teaching a course to many universities in developed (Karolinska Institute Stockholm, Oxford University, Vienna Medical University) and developing countries (Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Maldives and Mexico), that the key to Global Surgery is not only innovations for low-cost surgery but also collaborative internationalism; because ‘Global means together’. I have been awarded Honorary/ Ad Eundem fellowships of Académie Nationale de Chirurgie France, Royal College of Surgeons of Thailand, International College of Laparoscopic Surgeons and all four Royal Colleges of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland. I am very proud of these academic honours; however, the ultimate reward I earned is spiritual; as the principle of “Noblesse oblige” became my code of honour. My favourite quotation sums up my philosophy: “Attitudes are more important than abilities; Character is more important than cleverness”
