Application for Sponsored overseas delegate

Since 2004, SPANZA has sponsored an anaesthetist with a strong interest in paediatric anaesthesia from a lesser developed country to attend the annual scientific SPANZA meeting. The sponsorship provides for airfares, accommodation and registration.  It is also expected that the successful applicant will be able to stay on in Australia for 1-2 weeks to undertake a placement at one of the local hospitals.

To date, SPANZA has sponsored anaesthetists from Uganda, Mongolia, Thailand, Bhutan, Fiji, the Solomon Islands, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Nepal and India.


Due to Covid-19 travel restrictions, the SPANZA Annual Conference is not being held as a destination event.

However, it is planned to be held as an online event and as such, SPANZA will be offering multiple free registrations for overseas delegates (who apply) from a developing country (and are accepted).

To apply for access to the conference, please send your Curriculum Vitae and a short email expressing your interest to the Secretariat:

Applications close 15 September 2020.
