2020 PACSA Virtual Congress


In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, there is too much uncertainty about the level of lock down South Africa may still find itself in for the remainder of 2020 - particularly with regards to international and local air travel. It is very definitely ‘Business Unusual’. As a result, the decision was to continue to host the 24th Paediatric Anaesthetics Congress … with a difference!

The PACSA Organising Committee is delighted to announce that the 2020 PACSA Congress will now be known as the 2020 PACSA Virtual Congress, and will take place between 13 and 15 November 2020.

We are very excited to be hosting a South African Anaesthetics FIRST. Workshops are replaced by simulation and practical demonstrations, and you can look forward to interactive presentations and networking the likes of which we have never seen before. The first simulation and practical demonstrations will take place on the afternoon of Friday 13 November, with interactive presentations being flighted on both Saturday 14 November and during the morning of Sunday 15 November, 2020.

We would like to invite all anaesthesiologists, anaesthetic registrars and medical officers from across the country and abroad to join us and become part of this exciting 24th PACSA Congress, the first virtual PACSA meeting.
