Toronto Anesthesia BBQ & Sports Day in Support of CASEIF
Canadian Anesthesiologists' Society International Education Foundation

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. Our philosophy is to work 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.
With partners – including the University of Rwanda, the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists, the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the Canadian Network for International Surgery, Dalhousie University, Queens University, McMaster University, University of Toronto, Western University, and Global Affairs Canada – we collaborate in low resource settings to build capacity for safe, sustainable anesthesia and perioperative care.
CASIEF is a registered charity and a sister organization to the Canadian Anesthesiologist's Society (https://www.cas.ca) and currently focuses on collaborative international partnerships in:
- Burkina Faso
CASIEF's work allows for the training of anesthesia providers through the development of residency programs, advanced skills training in obstetric, pain and paediatric anesthesia, and for continued professional development of attending anesthesiologists in LMICs.
