ESA confirmed as WFSA Regional Section for Europe
The World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA) and the European Society of Anaesthesiology (ESA) are delighted to announce their agreement that with effect from July 2014 the ESA formally becomes the European regional section of the WFSA.
After extended deliberation and consultation (including with our colleagues in the NASC), we believe that this arrangement offers a solid working model for European member societies to contribute to, and benefit from, our global alliance. By assuming the role of regional section the ESA will have a more clearly defined collaboration with the WFSA, which is something that both organisations welcome wholeheartedly.
Please join us in celebrating this agreement as we look forward to enhanced co-operation and the positive impact this will have on our profession and those whom we serve.
David Wilkinson, President WFSA
