We are now close to conclusion of the third out-reach course in
Obstetrical Ultrasound organized by ISUOG ( international Society of
Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology), at St Damien Hospital, with
the support of Rava Foundation, and generous local staff.
This morning the ISOUG representatives, underlining the special
success of the three courses in Haiti, pledged the willingness to
support Haitian ob-gyn doctors to set up an Haitian society of
Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology which could become part of the
greater world family of national societies which contributes with their
members to the ISUOG activity.
Dr Jean Claude Fouron, Haitian, a world-wide known perinatal
cardiologist andultrasound authority, member of ISUOG, wished it to
become an inclusive Society able to represent the fertile field of
Haitian Ob-Gyn professional with dedicated interest and skills in
obstetrical and gynecological ultrasound.
The team of the Rava Foundation is proud of being a little part in
this process. Ultrasound is a must in modern obstetrics, is essential
in high risk obstetrical Units such as the</x> one we are supporting
which delivers 4000 pregnant women a year at St Damien. These outreach course we
contributed helped local professionals to improve their skills
andshare experience with international faculties. And now, thank to
thissuccess we understand at our surprise thatour aim went even
further. We thank ISUOG for being willing to support even a big step
