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.
The Canadian Anesthesiologists' Society International Education Foundation (CASIEF) works with anesthesia providers in low and middle-income countries (LMIC) to develop self-sustaining programs appropriate to their own needs. Consultations and collaborations with ministries of health, anesthesia providers, anesthesia societies, and local training institutions are key to building successful partnerships. CASIEF is a registered charity and a sister organization to the Canadian Anesthesiologists' Society and currently focuses on collaborative international partnerships in Rwanda, Guyana, Ethiopia, and Burkina Faso.
CASIEF's work allows for the training of anesthesia providers through the development of residency and fellowship programs, advanced skills training in obstetric, pain and paediatric anesthesia, and for continued professional development for attending anesthesiologists in LMICs.
