Our Partner in Africa
Imaging the World
Imaging the World, our partner in providing you with medical volunteer opportunities in Africa, is a unique and inspiring organization.
Imaging the World is saving the lives of mothers and babies by bringing ultrasound equipment and training to rural health clinics. Imaging the World’s accomplishments in Uganda include:
Over 200,000 scans performed
A 70 percent increase in prenatal visits at health centers that employ the Imaging the World model
Over 150 clinical officers, nurses and midwives have been trained by Imaging the World. These medical personnel are now proficient in providing high-quality obstetric scans at the point of care
And most importantly, 23 percent of obstetric scans have identified pregnancy complications that require specialized care that pregnant women might otherwise not receive.
This means that 23 percent of women who have ultrasound scans are informed in advance that their pregnancies will require special care. This saves lives in very real ways.
