"Working with ISUOG in the last few years has been very rewarding. Realizing the unmet need for high quality Obstetric and Fetal ultrasound in the West African sub-region, we challenged ourselves to make positive impact through the organization of the now widely acclaimed ISUOG approved workshop in Obstetric Ultrasound and Fetal Medicine in Benin City, Nigeria. We also put up relevant ultrasound courses by renowned experts for free on our website. A lot of practitioners now have the opportunity to actualize their dream of being able to confidently carry out Feto-Maternal imaging of acceptable standard. The introduction of practitioners to ISUOG membership platform and facilitating ISUOG livestream educational events has also benefitted many. We hope to break new grounds in promoting imaging as a tool for stemming maternal and perinatal mortality in the sub-region."
