In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the WFSA Board and WCA Local Organising Committee have decided to reschedule the 17th WFSA World Congress of Anaesthesiologists. We made this decision after careful consideration of our first and overriding priority: the health and wellbeing of all Congress participants.
