Acts of terrorism in Brussels

The members of the World Federation Executive Committee and Council were deeply shocked and saddened at the news of the attacks in Brussels on Tuesday. We know that our intensive and critical care colleagues will be at the centre of delivering care to the injured and wounded. We express our solidarity with their efforts and the wider community in Brussels as they come to terms with the impact of such indiscriminate attacks at the airport and at the Maelbeek metro station. The World Federation stands alongside many countries and organisations around the world in public condemnation of this unnecessary and senseless violence.

We know all our member societies would express their support at this time of tragedy. On behalf of all members of our global organisation we also extend our sincerest thoughts and sympathies to the families and friends of those who have been lost.

The Council of the World Federation approved a donation of $2000 USD towards the Care Box appeal to assist in providing care for the victims of the earthquake(s) in Nepal. We have been liaising with our critical care colleagues in Nepal to ensure this contribution will help to keep the ICUs supplied with much needed emergency medical drugs and equipment.

In memory of Flavio Maciel

It is with great sadness that we annouce the passing of Dr Flavio Maciel on Monday, August 31st. This is a sad day for the global critical care community. 


Flavio Maciel was elected to the Council of the World Federation at the 9th World Congress in Buenos Aires in 2005 and served with great distinction until 2013. Flavio was a committed professional and a kind and generous man.


The World Federation extend our sincere condolences to Flavio's family and colleagues. We hope the passge of time will assuage the anguish of their bereavement and leave them with only cherished memories of a much loved man.

A group of Toronto-based physicians have been raising funds for the Nepal ICU Care BOX at Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH) in Nepal.
This hospital is the major regional centre for the numerous patients in need of care. This is leading to a rapid depletion in supplies.

The Care BOX encompasses essential basic equipment and medications (fluids, lines, antibiotics etc.) for patients who are unable to pay for basic resuscitative and life-saving care.

If you wish to donate and learn more about this initiative please go to the indiegogo website
