SAFE Africa

Help save lives in Africa through safer anaesthesia.

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 Anaesthetists fundraising campaign aiming to:

  • Raise at least £100,000
  • Scale-up the delivery of three-day SAFE obstetrics and paediatrics training courses
  • Sustainably improve anaesthesia education and care in Africa in the long-term
Since the first SAFE course in 2011, over 100 SAFE courses have now been delivered in 33 countries globally. At least 3,479 practitioners have been trained.

Each one of these will go on to treat around 1,500 patients each year.

With your support, we can train even more practitioners and improve the safety of thousands of patients in Africa.
