Message from the president

Welcome to the website of The Society of Anaesthetists of Hong Kong.

Over the past 50 years, SAHK has helped to nurture and develop the specialty of anaesthesia, pain medicine and intensive care in Hong Kong to the highest standards.  The society has been relentlessly promoting training and education among professionals while educating the general public about our specialty.  This is a never ending but important task. SAHK is, of course, affiliated to the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiology (WFSA) and we wish to strengthen relationships with fellow societies, and foster academic and clinical cooperation in the region, especially China and Taiwan.

We are excited be hosting the World Congress of Anaesthesiologists in August 2016. The “Olympics of anaesthesia” will be a great opportunity for SAHK to show the world our competence and we will also benefit from academic exchange with top tier professionals. Plans are well underway and we even have a sponsorship plan to support our members to attend.

There will always be challenges and opportunities ahead of us and SAHK is there for you.  Join us today and make your own contribution to the development of Hong Kong anaesthesiology!
