Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA)


The World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA) is the foremost global alliance of anaesthesiologists, working together with national, regional and specialty organizations to facilitate and promote the highest standards of patient care. The mission of the WFSA is to improve patient care by uniting anaesthesiologists around the world.

WFSA delivers its mission through programmes implemented in partnership with National Societies of Anaesthesiology and other organizations that share WFSA's objectives. WFSA works with the World Health Organization (WHO), with governments, with other standard setters, with surgical organizations, with NGOs, with hospitals and with training centers, and welcomes partnerships with organizations that support safe surgery and recognize that safe anaesthesia is an essential element of the same.
