SAFE Africa

Around the world people are suffering or dying unnecessarily from the lack of safe anaesthesia in surgery, something that is taken for granted in the UK.

The situation is critical in Africa, where millions lack access to safe anaesthesia.

SAFE Africa is the Association of Anaesthetist’s fundraising campaign which aims to:

  • raise £100,000 over two years
  • scale-up the delivery of three-day SAFE obstetrics and paediatrics training courses
  • and sustainably improve anaesthesia education and care in Africa in the long-term

Find out how you can get involved and support the campaign

Over the last six years the SAFE project has trained 2,271 anaesthetic providers in 21 countries. Each one of these practitioners will go on to treat around 1,500 patients each year.

With your support over the next two years we can train even more practitioners and improve the safety of thousands of patients in Africa.
