Burkina Faso

The Canadian Anesthesiologists’ Society’s (CAS) International Education Foundation provided generous funding to allow us to send enough oximeters to Burkina Faso to cover the OR need nationwide. This was complemented by delivery of training workshops in the capital Ouagadougou, and the second city, Bobo-Dioulasso, during October 2013.

Past President of CAS (and of WFSA), Dr Angela Enright, provided an external steer to a wonderful local faculty led by Professor Ouedraogo and the Society of Anesthesia and Emergency of Burkina Faso.
