Abstract: 
We welcome the five published responses1-5 to our editorial, 6 which outlined a research agenda for making surgery accessible in low-and middle-income country settings, where it is most needed. The commentators represent a good mix of academics, researchers and advocacy specialists, which demonstrates the growing global commitment to working together in the ‘ empirically evolving global surgery systems science. ’ 3 There is considerable consensus in the messages, including the importance of collaborative research approaches, adapted to country contexts; a focus on district population needs; and the use of standardised routine data collection and evaluation methods. Here, we briefly touch on some important new perspectives and some diverging ones.
