About Us

Over the years, the society strived to support major scientific activities held annually. Notably like any rare specialty with limited members, the society witnessed periods of action as well as lull, but the 2020 pandemic was one of the most active phases. Throughout the pandemic, the society encouraged anaesthesiologists and intensivists locally to join under the leadership of the Ministry of Health COVID centre’s ICUs. The society also developed useful social-media articles during the pandemic circulated to guide colleagues and public regarding the different challenges in COVID-19.

Lately, in 2022, the Society e-mail created (KACCS@kma.org.kw) opening new horizons in reaching out to the world welcoming new opportunities and activities.
