1. ESOG-ACOG-CIRHT Collaborative Project

The ESOG_ACOG Collaboration project "Enhancing Medical Education and Residency Training in Obstetrics and Gynecology in Ethiopia" has come a long way and achieved a great deal since it was launched in June 2016 (It went operational on September 2016). The project which was initially structured with four interrelated thematic areas i.e. Residency program, CME, Journal and Examination & Certification has later on expanded its thematic areas with two thematic areas namely Leadership Development & Medical Ethics and two cross cutting areas i.e. IT development & Program Communication expanding the project to eight thematic areas.
Accordingly the project has made a long stride in enhancing the ob-gyn residency programs at the twelve universities through implementing the major thematic areas activities. It has worked relentlessly in improving the ob-gyn residency training programs quality through system strengthening and building the capacity of faculty and ESOG members at large. The project has also had a significant input in upgrading the reproductive health journal in quantity and quality and has also played a leading role in providing CME course to its members.
