Monday 16th October 2017 is World Anaesthesia Day

As you may know Monday 16th October 2017 is World Anaesthesia Day. This year it will be celebrating through the #CountMeIn! campaign. Count Me In! is an initiative to unite anaesthesia providers to raise awareness and support for scaling-up “human resources for anaesthesia”.

The WFSA’s recently launched Global Anaesthesia Workforce Map highlights the anaesthesia workforce shortage crisis. 70 countries had a total anaesthesia provider density of less than 5 per 100,000 population. Without adequate numbers of staff it will be impossible to scale-up anaesthesia provision worldwide, and impossible to ensure safe anaesthesia for all patients.

For more information on the campaign you can download the #CountMeIn! Toolkit, and for resources in Spanish and French please visit the World Anaesthesia Day webpage.
