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
Tanzania has fewer than 50 doctor anaesthetists for a growing population of 59 million people. This situation can be improved by teaching and supporting qualified nurse anaesthetists to safely administer anaesthesia and empowering them to work together in teams to provide mutual support and accountability. Following the success of the first obstetric anaesthesia refresher course to be run in a remote rural area of Tanzania, the Kagera region, we are now fundraising to run a further course. We need your support to achieve this, so Please donate now. Thank you.

Congratulations to Trustee, Simon Brooks, and colleagues from the Benenden Hospital Trust who succesfully reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro and raised almost £5,000 to provide anaesthesia equipment for Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre (KCMC) in Tanzania. The team from Benenden also spent time training anaesthesia providers at the hospital to safely deal with difficult airways and use video laryngoscopes.
