The World Society of the Abdominal Compartment Syndrome (WSACS) was founded in 2004 to promote research, foster education, and improve the survival of patients with intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and/or abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). The WSACS is a non-profit organization whose educational efforts are dependent upon philantrophic educational grants from our industry partners as well as donations from patients, families, and others. The WSACS greatly appreciates the generous financial assistance of its partners without whose help the mission of the WSACS could not occur.
If you or your family has been impacted by IAH/ACS and would like to partner with the WSACS to improve the diagnosis and management of IAH/ACS, please contact the WSACS Executive Committee. All donations to the WSACS are tax-deductible to the full extent allowable by law. Complete documentation of your donation to the WSACS will be provided for such purposes. Donations may also be made in the name of a family member or that of physicians and nurses whom you would like to see recognized for their dedication to patient care.
Please contact the WSACS Executive Committee for further information regarding philanthropic donations to the Society.
