1000+ OB/GYN Project

The Cameroon-Arizona Partnership is based upon the 1000+ OBGYN Project, a replicable and validated program model created at the University of Michigan, which is now the basis of over a dozen active OBGYN residency and education partnerships in Sub-Saharan Africa.

What is the 1000+ OBGYN Project?

1000+ OBGYN ProjectThe 1000+ OBGYN Project is designed to deliver care in 14 countries across the African continent both in the present and for the foreseeable future. We will do so by replicating at Universities across Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) a unique, culturally sensitive and sustainable model – one that has already proven successful in Ghana. Partners on both sides of the Atlantic — universities, professional societies and expert clinical organizations — have responded. All that’s missing are the means to put this game-changer into action.

This project will train hundreds of OBGYNs each year who will deliver critical care from the day they begin their residencies. It will create a pipeline resulting in 1,000 certified OBGYNs over the projected status quo within a decade, and at least 1,000 more every five years thereafter. Eighteen African medical schools will leverage the strengths and commitments of 17 U.S. partners to infuse mutual respect, expertise, curricula, and mentoring into African OBGYN training programs. These training partnerships will respond to the unique needs of the African context, building the in-country capacity to lead high-impact OBGYN programs in Sub-Saharan Africa.
