SAFE Africa campaign


The SAFE Africa fundraising campaigning aims to:

  • Raise £100,000 over two years
  • Increase delivery of three day SAFE obstetrics and paediatrics training courses
  • Sustainably improve anaesthesia education and care in Africa in the long-term

Since its launch the SAFE project has trained over 3,000  anaesthetic providers in 30 countries. Each of these practitioners will go on to treat around 1,500 patients a year.

With your support we can train even more practitioners and improve the safety of thousands of patients in Africa. Find our more about becoming a SAFE volunteer or how to get funding for a SAFE project

"On my own visit to a SAFE course in Uganda only a few years back, I was shocked to see first-hand the reality of the challenging conditions that many of these dedicated practitioners work under.  Support the SAFE Africa campaign today and together we can build capacity of local anaesthesia providers to improve the safety of thousands of patients in Africa."
