World Federation of Societies of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine

The World Federation of Societies of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine (WFSICCM) was established in 1977 and is a membership organization comprised of National Societies of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine. The principle objective of the World Federation is to promote the highest standards of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine for all mankind, without discrimination. The WFSICCM now has a membership of over 80 national scientific societies with a combined individual membership of over 80,000 intensive and critical care practitioners throughout the world.


The World Federation is governed by an elected Council of 15 members each of whom serve a term of office of 4 years. The leadership of the organisation is provided by an Executive Committee comprised of the President, Secretary General and Treasurer. The organisation is headquartered near London, UK where all support functions are provided by a Chief Executive Officer. Council would normally meet on two occasions each year but more regular discussions are held using on-line video conferencing.


In seeking to promote the highest standards of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine for all mankind without discrimination, there is an increasing recognition that we have a growing responsibility to foster international collaboration in intensive and critical medicine because of the growing international focus of disease. Disease knows no international boundaries. We want to be the global organization that can facilitate and enable collaborative efforts in research, training and education to raise standards of care and improve outcomes for patients.
