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 believes that by ensuring every woman has access to a competent ultrasound professional, we can reduce maternal mortality and create a better, fairer world for women everywhere.

The ISUOG Outreach program aims to improve maternal and neonatal health outcomes by teaching healthcare providers to use ultrasound as an identification tool for conditions that increase the risk of complications for mothers. The Outreach Program was created to work with volunteer doctors to promote the education, training and the availability of ultrasound in underserved communities around the world with the goal of enhancing maternal and perinatal health.
