The WFSA invites you to join our World Anaesthesia Day campaign #TheRightStuff

Dear Colleague,


This World Anaesthesia Day (Tuesday 16th October 2018) the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA) invites you to join with us and amplify:

1. Our global *#TheRightStuff* campaign, an initiative to unite anaesthesia providers around the world to raise awareness for the importance of equipment in providing life-saving anaesthesia care

2. The *World Restart A Heart Day* Campaign

This year, together with the World Health Organisation, the WFSA published the WHO-WFSA  International Standards for a Safe Practice of Anesthesia
As well as highlighting the importance of workforce and medicines, the International Standards also highlight how important adequate facilities and equipment are to providing safe anaesthesia care.

To take part in* #TheRightStuff*, simply print off your *printable poster *(attached) and fill it in with the name of your favourite anaesthesia equipment and of the
country where you work. Take a photo of you and / or your team with the poster and ideally with the piece of equipment and share it with @WFSAorg on social media with the hashtag *#TheRightStuff *

Also starting this year the WFSA is part of the *World Restart a Heart Day campaign* to raise awareness of the importance of CPR. World Restart a Heart Day, also on 16th October, is a global initiative to raise awareness about the importance of bystander CPR and to increase bystander CPR rates worldwide.

You can  find attached your *#**TheRightStuff Toolkit*, with all of the information on the two campaigns. You can also download the toolkit from our World Anaesthesia Day webpage here:

Join together with thousands of anaesthesiologists and other anaesthesia providers around the world to show your support!

Please share this message widely with colleagues. World Anaesthesia Day is a celebration of the specialty so we look forward to your participation, to seeing your photos and to highlighting your amazing work across social media, WFSA newsletters and the website.

Kind regards,
