Maternal and neonatal mortality remain unacceptably high in many countries around the world. Every year over 300,000 women die following complications in pregnancy and childbirth with 99% of these women dying in poorer countries. Most of these deaths are preventable.

ISUOG Outreach builds a sustainable national health structure for providing OBGYN Ultrasound to all women in a specific underserved country. ISUOG Outreach helps a country to provide quality and accessible care to all its women, through training the trainers in Ultrasound and raising the level of their skills and knowledge. ISUOG Outreach also works with their Governments to ensure sustainability through post-program support, introducing the ISUOG curricula as national (or University), and providing access to resources to all ISUOG members from that country.

ISUOG Outreach recruits ISUOG members as Volunteers and Virtual Mentors from all parts of the world to provide their expertise and share their experience thus helping us to deliver the programmes.

ISUOG Outreach Vision: Every woman should undergo a safe and patient-centered quality ultrasound as part of their healthcare evaluation.

ISUOG Outreach Mission: Bring comprehensive and sustainable OBGYN ultrasound education globally so every woman can access high-quality ultrasound services with the aim of impacting health outcomes.
