Apr 6, 2023

The Alliance hosted an informal gathering of members including: Fistula Foundation, Kapnek Trust Zimbabwe, Friends of Chidamoyo, UC Berkeley, UCSF Bixby Center for Reproductive Health, Stanford University, and Viamo to share experiences in rural healthcare delivery.

Digital innovations such as the Butterfly Ultrasound device, which attaches to a cell phone and provides access to specialists for image analysis, were discussed as critical for low-resources settings.

The gathering was a pilot of the Tables of 8 concept, to help forge connections and identify common areas of interest for future collaboration. Stay tuned for more to come.
