Every country is different and thus every developmental need for each country on improving maternal mortality rates varies. Nonetheless, ISUOG Outreach is proud to share its resources used in a low setting context with others in efforts to dissemenate knowledge that can be useful in promoting both sustainable and positive outcomes to the quality of women's health in the developing world.
ISUOG Outreach is proud to use the eBook Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology: A Practical Approach for its Outreach projects. The eBook was launched in September 2014 during the Outreach Workshop in Barcelona and has been created in collaboration with former Outreach Committee Chair Dr. Alfred Abuhamad, Dr Dario Paladini, Dr Philippe Jeanty and Dr Rabih Chaouhi in offering the basics in ultrasound training through virtual means.
The eBook is available for free download and will be available soon in multiple languages to ensure its reach.
