Leaving a gift in your will

Our mission is simple

We won’t stop until everyone, everywhere has access to safe anaesthesia

You can help us create this future by leaving a gift to the WFSA in your will

The impact of your gift

Anaesthesia and surgery are often jointly termed ‘the neglected stepchild of global health’ due to the lack of funding allocated to these areas. And yet we know that 5 out of the world’s 8 billion people do not have access to safe surgical and anaesthesia care.

By remembering the WFSA in your will, you can help us continue to unite and empower anaesthesia professionals around the world to improve safety for their patients.

Delivering Impact WFSA in Numbers:

Our programmes are focused on delivering education and training, particularly for anaesthesia professionals in low- and middle-income countries; helping them to improve their knowledge and skills in order to save lives.

Our advocacy work sits along this and amplifies the voices of anaesthesiologists at all levels to promote anaesthesia and surgery as an essential element of global health. As a federation, we support our member societies to strengthen the anaesthesia and surgical services in their own countries.

WFSA’s promise to you:

Your will is personal, and we will never ask you to tell us your decision. However, we would love to have the opportunity to say ‘thank you’ if you are comfortable telling us.

  • We understand that your loved ones will always come first.
  • We will never put you under any pressure – it’s your decision to make in your own time.
  • If you choose to add WFSA to your will, we will use your future gift carefully, so it achieves the greatest impact for the Anaesthesiologists and Member Societies we support.
  • You can change your mind at any time.
