Imaging for Impact Accelerator

The Imaging for Impact Accelerator initiative embodies our dedication to making a significant impact on global healthcare. By identifying and nurturing dedicated professionals, we transform them into ambassadors of change. These ambassadors are tasked with a critical mission: to spread the knowledge and application of Ultrasoundtraining and certification across the globe. By integrating Ultrasound into clinical practice universally, from bustling urban centers to isolated regions, we enhance patient care and outcomes significantly.

Believing firmly in the power of education to transform healthcare, the Inteleos Foundation actively works to democratize ultrasound education and certification. Our scholarship program focuses on providing financial support to emerging practitioners, especially those from underrepresented regions. We target ambitious students, residents, and recent graduates enthusiastic about mastering ultrasound technology. Our aim? To cultivate a new generation of healthcare professionals capable of leveraging ultrasound to make a meaningful difference in patient care worldwide.

Ultrasound Proficiency Grand Challenge

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.
