Based on a shared vision of “patients first,” the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA) has formed an affiliation with the International Anesthesia Research Society (IARS) and its official journal, Anesthesia & Analgesia.

This affiliation will serve as a conduit to focus the attention of the best minds in our discipline on advancing the health care of patients worldwide. As data are gathered and needs assessed, it is hoped that the combined efforts of these entities will provide opportunities to ask important questions that affect all our patients and to document improvements in patient outcomes.

The WFSA, the IARS, and Anesthesia & Analgesia share the belief that regardless of where we are in the world, all patients come first. In creating this affiliation, we hope to advance the care of patients everywhere.
