Together We Can

The Singapore Society of Anaesthesiologists are honoured to be co-organizers of the 18th World Congress of Anaesthesiologists (WCA2024).

The congress is organised on behalf of the World Federation of Societies of Anesthesiologists (WFSA). Held bi-annually since 1955, WCA has been recognised for its contribution and impact to the global anaesthesiology community.

With representation from more than 130 countries, the WCA is the only international congress that offers a comprehensive programme that addresses anaesthesiology globally. Additionally, WCA provides training and education opportunities that drive conversations, deepen collaboration and accelerate the promotion of science, networking, and knowledge share across the spectrum of anaesthesiology.
