Pay Membership Dues

The WFSA allows member societies and their members many benefits designed to encourage learning and engagement within the anaesthesia community in order to promote our speciality and improve access to educational materials. The WFSA is already made up of 133 member societies representing more than 140 countries, so why not join our incredible network?

For 2024, WFSA member societies pay US$4.10 for each of their individual members

Please note: individuals can not become members of WFSA – if you are a member of a national society, you already benefit from WFSA membership
