The 1000+ OBGYN Project is a consortium of Sub-Saharan African obstetric and gynecology (OBGYN) departments and their U.S. OBGYN department partners whose goal is to improve maternal and neonatal health in Sub-Saharan Africa through training and retraining obstetricians and gynecologists to serve their communities.

The Project

The 1000+ OBGYN Project has received generous grant funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Bank which allows us to partner with The Global Library of Women’s Medicine (GLOWM) to distribute USB Memory Sticks containing open-access obgyn resources for those with limited or no access to the internet, or low bandwidth. GLOWM has worked to compress the resources found on its website to make the files available on USB Memory Sticks.

The Purpose

This distribution initiative is designed to provide freely available, quality academic and instructional materials for obstetrics and gynecology trainers/professors, professionals and students to complement and enhance the ob-gyn curriculum, without the need for internet access or high bandwidth. The USB Memory Sticks can be shared with an unlimited number of faculties and students to download the materials, or be put onto shared faculty/student computers to distribute the materials simply and widely.
