Support our overseas aid work

Many people in less developed countries lack access to high-quality anaesthesia and pain medicine, essential to good health outcomes and quality of life.

Our fellows regularly do voluntary clinical and educational work in developing countries to help deliver better healthcare, comfort and safety through improved access to safe anaesthesia and pain medicine.

In Papua New Guinea, there is a severe shortage of anaesthetists and access to good medical care. Our fellows work with local doctors to improve anaesthesia training and to provide ongoing educational support.

Our Essential Pain Management (EPM) course is designed to support developing country communities, improving pain-management skills, knowledge and abilities. Local health workers learn to run courses, building local capacity and ownership, helping sustain better future health outcomes.

The course has been taught in over 60 countries.

Donors can give through the foundation to help deliver safe anaesthesia and effective pain medicine for people in marginalised or remote communities.

Support Indigenous health

Many Indigenous communities have limited access to essential services, and health outcomes often well below acceptable national standards.

Our Indigenous health program allows donors to help people who need better access to essential healthcare.

Our fellows are working to improve access to quality anaesthesia and pain medicine for Indigenous communities in Australia and New Zealand. Initiatives are designed to address the most urgent needs, and make access to quality healthcare more equitable.

Our Indigenous Health Committee’s program includes:

  • Support to encourage clinicians to work in remote areas.
  • Podcasts and case studies to help specialists understand Indigenous cultural and health issues, and prepare them for work with indigenous communities.
  • Student mentoring programs, working with the Australian Indigenous Doctors Association and Te ORA, the Maori Medical Practitioners Association.
  • Additional funding is always needed. Donors can give to support the program through the foundation.
