World Anaesthesia Day - 16 October 2021


Dear colleagues,

Please join us as we celebrate World Anaesthesia Day on the 16th of October 2021. This year's theme is Teamwork: Stronger teams for better patient care.

Anaesthesiologists are at the forefront of clinical teams that bring together individuals with different skillsets, attributes and styles.
This World Anaesthesia Day we want to celebrate those skills and attributes. We want to celebrate #TeamAnaesthesia, namely the people we work alongside and rely on.

In support of this campaign, we've created the attached #WAD2021 toolkit for ideas and resources such as the (#WAD2021 photobooth) -  on how to support #TeamAnaesthesia. and a #WAD2021 web page is available at

We ask that you share these resources with your networks through your social media channels, WhatsApp groups, websites and mailings lists.

Thank you.

World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists
