WFSA’s statement at the Special Session of the World Health Assembly on preparedness and response to health emergencies. The statement highlights the centrality of anaesthesia’s role in responding to global health emergencies.
An enormous thank you to the 6539 delegates from 132 countries who made WCA2021 such a unique and valuable networking and learning experience.
Every year on 16th October, anaesthesia professionals the world over celebrate and highlight the vital role that anaesthesia plays in global health.
Dr John Severinghaus, who passed away on 2 June 2021, pioneered the foundations for many anaesthesia technologies still in use today. Dr Severinghaus was a great friend of WFSA and supporter of Fund a Fellow and will be greatly missed.
