The GLOBAL ALSO program is an addendum to the ALSO program and was was created as a result of the Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics (ALSO) program expanding internationally. The current curriculum has been modified for the epidemiological, medical, technological, pedagogical, and cultural contexts where ALSO is taught. The five leading causes of maternal mortality in the world are: hemorrhage (25%), infection (15%), unsafe abortion (13%), eclampsia (12%), and obstructed labor (8%).
The Global ALSO program is available for purchase.
