AO Alliance: Tailored solutions for improving the care of the injured

We value: Passion · Collaboration · Integrity · Empowerment

AO Alliance is a developmental nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the care of the injured in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). We envision a world where timely and appropriate fracture care is accessible to everyone.

Our mission and goal

Enhancing the care of the injured can reduce human suffering, disability and poverty. We have made it our goal to build solutions to lessen the burden of injuries in LMICs.

What we do

AO Alliance was launched in January 2015, as the most significant CSR contribution of the AO Foundation to focus on the injury epidemic in LMICs.

We know great things can happen when we match the right solutions to the right challenges. The AO Alliance implements innovative and effective programs meeting fracture care needs, which are sustainable and build local capacity.

AO Alliance pursues two mutually reinforcing objectives:

  • To use its reputation and its reach to raise awareness and advocate and provide policy advice for the neglected burden of trauma that leads to death and disability
  • To conduct developmental and educational activities to improve the care of the injured

With country initiatives and education programs throughout LMICs in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, our key principle is investment in local capacity – empowering surgeons and other healthcare workers in their own countries by providing a framework to practice their specialty and improve their skills.

Whether you are making a small contribution or partnering with us at a larger scale, we are committed to transparency. La Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS) – the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company – is our auditor overseeing our major undertakings, ensuring accountability to our stakeholders.

Every bit of help counts
