The joint project between the Ethiopian Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ESOG) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG)-ESOG/ACOG Collaborative Project held its fifth leadership Meeting from April 24-25, in Washington DC. Also held was the 2018 Annual Clinical Meeting (ACM) that took place from April 27-30, 2018, in Austin, Texas, USA. Seven and 20 participants from ESOG participated at the leadership meeting and the ACM respectively. Presentations on the progress regarding the implementation of the project during the last 6 months were made on all thematic areas at the leadership meeting. In addition, the plans for activities to be undertaken in the remaining six months were also discussed. 

The ACM created a good networking opportunity beyond its being a scientific meeting.
