The WFSA and the Association of Anaesthetists are proud to celebrate the 100th SAFE course which took place in October 2018
Since the first SAFE course in Uganda in 2011, over 100 SAFE courses have now been delivered in 33 countries training at least 3,479 clinicians, mostly anaesthesia providers but also midwives, obstetricians and other physicians. Approximately 520 anaesthesia providers have been trained as SAFE trainers.
As of 2019, the 17th September has been designated as the World Patient Safety Day by the World Health Organization (WHO).
