We drive initiatives that aim to improve global healthcare through ultrasound education, innovation, and research.
Social Enterprise is one of our key focuses
Our Ambassadors are leaders in global health and champions of ultrasound, dedicated to improving their own communities by creating strategy, cultivating resources, and conducting outreach.
The purpose of the Global Ambassador Program is to engage local leaders in under-resourced environments to foster a network of entrepreneurs who focus on designing projects to advance health outcomes in their communities, both locally and nationally.
Coordinating a multi-industry approach to achieving ultrasound proficiency
The Inteleos Foundation is focused on addressing disparities in global healthcare through collaboration and coordination of the public and private sectors.
Our Current Grand Challenge in Kenya
The Ultrasound Proficiency Grand Challenge is targeting maternal fetal health in Kenya due to the high maternal mortality rates, which stand at 342 deaths per 100,000 births, representing approximately 0.02% of the female population. Our strategy is to to develop a specialized curriculum designed to train and equip skilled birth attendants and clinical officers with ultrasound in both rural and urban environments, which will be driven by local clinical leadership in Kenya. This training will help in reducing the daily death toll and work towards the goal of decreasing maternal and fetal morbidity by 10% within five years.
Increasing access to training & certification
We aim to remove barriers and expand the practice of ultrasound in every nation by offering financial aid to clinicians who need assistance.
