About the Show

More than 70% of the world’s population cannot access essential surgery. For many, the hospital ship Africa Mercy is their last hope. On board, a crew of world class medical volunteers from Australia and across the globe face the biggest challenges of their lives, working to provide lifesaving surgery to those with nowhere else to turn.
