Safe anesthesia and perioperative care globally
To collaborate with partners to build capacity for safe, sustainable anesthesia and perioperative care globally through education, knowledge translation, and advocacy
Safe Anesthesia & Surgery Saves Lives
Five billion people lack access to safe surgical care. Surgical disease kills more people annually than HIV, TB, and malaria combined. Unfortunately, surgical capacity is least where it is needed most. Surgical care in low resource settings is cost effective and an indispensable, indivisible part of basic health care. Our philosophy is to work with anesthesia providers in low and middle-income countries (LMIC) to develop self-sustaining programs appropriate to their own needs. Consultations and collaboration with ministries of health, anesthesia providers, anesthesia societies, and local training institutions are key to building successful partnerships.

This bilateral partnership has clearly been a success. After Dr. Rudakemwa completed his Canadian elective he mentioned “High level of responsibility for patient care, human factors and anesthesia, organization, scholar and social life” helped him shape his practice in Rwanda.
