The College of Anaesthesiologists of East, Central and Southern Africa (CANECSA) has launched a map of the physician Anaesthesiologist workforce in the eight member countries of the College: Eswatini, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The map helps to describe the distribution of the anaesthesiologist workforce at various levels, from national level right down to district level.

The map was produced in collaboration with the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI), the College of Surgeons of East, Central and Southern Africa (COSECSA), the College of Anaesthesiologists of Ireland (CAI), Queen’s University Belfast, the Anaesthesiology Association of Uganda and the University of California San Francisco. This work is supported by Irish Aid as part of the “Building Anaesthesia Training in the ECSA Region” collaborative programme.

The anaesthesiologist workforce is dynamic and data will be regularly updated. CANECSA welcomes feedback and updated information, please reach us through Greater detail on the composition of the workforce will be published in a peer reviewed journal in due course.
