Description

Global Women’s Health Support is a nonprofit organization that serves as a teaching platform to provide OBGYN ultrasound technical knowledge for providers in OBGYN clinics in of underprivileged areas of the world. We have gone to Venezuela, 1998, Tanzania in 2008, Indonesia and the Philippines in 2014. Our plan has been enlarged with the publication of “El Manual de Ginecología” a digital iBook in Spanish that includes a didactic gynecological teaching using a syndromic approach, which includes multiple images and videos. Our next commitment will be held in partnership with Curamericas International in the mountains of Guatemala. We will teach ultrasound to the midwives of 4 different “Casas Maternas” that are birthing establishments located in rural areas of the Guatemalan highlands. We are also presenting here our talk for the Medicine X 2016 meeting: The Magic of Images: Make a Workflow that Works!
