The AO Alliance is a nonprofit development organization dedicated to strengthening care of the injured in over 30 low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in Sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia. Our mission is to reduce human suffering, disability, and poverty by implementing programs that enhance local fracture-care capacity for a sustainable impact. We are one of the most ambitious expressions so far of a determination to reduce musculoskeletal trauma-related morbidity and mortality in LMICs. We accomplish this by investing in local capacity and fostering best practices in patient care and by advocating for injuries to become a global public health priority. In addition, we develop national trauma plans to facilitate the adoption and implementation of critical policies by health authorities.
We envision a world where timely and appropriate fracture care is accessible to everyone.
