Most of us take the availability of anaesthesia for granted. But millions of people in the developing world are not so fortunate. In poor countries, many hospitals lack suitable anaesthetic equipment, medicines and trained staff. Imagine needing an amputation or a Caesarean section without anaesthesia?
Without anaesthesia emergency operations cannot be performed and many patients do not survive, especially women in childbirth and children. Safe Anaesthesia Worldwide was formed to ensure that the benefits of anaesthesia are available wherever needed so that patients can receive the treatment they need, safely and painlessly.

Anaesthesia Training in rural Tanzania
Education and training are key components to providing lifesaving healthcare. SAWW recently supported training for anaesthesia providers in a poor rural area of Tanzania, the Kagera Region. The three day obstetric anaesthesia refresher course was designed and delivered primarily by Tanzanian anaesthetists, who were familiar with the everyday challenges faced by anaesthesia providers in the region. Enthusiastic attendees travelled up to 15 hours by bus for a rare chance to refresh their anaesthesia skills. For some it had been 30 years since they had received any training.
