AFJ Maternal Health/Handheld Ultrasound Initiative

The American Friends of Jamaica (AFJ) is spearheading a Maternal Health/Handheld Ultrasound project with the Ministry of Health and Wellness. This project is not only important regarding obstetrics, but also for accident and emergency patients as most hospitals in Jamaica have limited or no access to ultrasound diagnostics onsite. The project is twofold; there is the handheld ultrasound integration in hospitals and a distribution of essential products to pregnant mothers in birthing centers across the island.
