A big welcome to the 6th All African Anaesthesia Congress being hosted for the first time in West Africa at Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria. This congress coincides with the 25th Anniversary of the Nigerian Society of Anaesthetists. At this congress, we will be focusing on “Solutions for Africa”. I believe that we can gain from our rich diversity, as we look inwards to find unique solutions for anaesthesia and perioperative care. Together, we can change the landscape of ourservice and practice in Africa.
