Our Work

The WFSA is dedicated to improving patient care around the world. It delivers this change through programmes in Advocacy, Education and Training, Safety and Quality and Innovation and Research all of which are made possible by working together as a Federation and with other partners that share our goals.

Each programme is supported by qualified anaesthesiologists who volunteer their time and expertise, be that as members of governance, through serving on committees, as trainers, fundraisers or as project leaders. This intensive application of volunteer resource ensures an outstanding return on investment and a development model that is sustainable.
