Evaluation report and an executive summary


Irene de Vries, Mahdi Abdelwahab, Barend Gerretsen

Since 2008, the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology (ISUOG), through ISUOG Outreach, aims to bring comprehensive and sustainable obstetric and gynaecology ultrasound education to lower resourced settings through a train the trainer’s approach.

As of 2020, ISUOG aims to move to more comprehensive programming for its areas of impact: training and education and beyond, including global access to obstetric and gynaecology ultrasound, and health systems strengthening.

KIT conducted an assessment that served to understand ISUOG Outreach’s current capacity and impact, align these with the global needs and inform its future strategy for sustainable impact.
