AO Alliance website is live!

We are excited to announce that the AO Alliance Foundation website is live!

The AO Alliance Foundation was legally created on 13 December 2014 at the official signing ceremony with Founding Fathers in Davos. This was the culmination of over 18 months of developmental work through task forces and management recruitment. Operations began on 1 January 2015 with inauguration of the office in the AO Center building in Davos, Switzerland, as well as financing of some AO surgeons projects in low income countries.

A web presence is an absolute must in the current days of instant information access and engagement with the public and stakeholders, not to mention the social media platforms. AO Alliance Foundation is proud to launch its first website, Caring for fractures, rebuilding futures.

The AO Alliance Foundation is a developmental nonprofit organization dedicated to improving fracture care for patients in low income countries through local capacity building. This is done through longer-term commitment projects over multiple years in the areas of fracture care education, clinical outcomes research and clinical services support. Initial country initiatives are focused in Africa (Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, Senegal) and Asia (Cambodia, Myanmar, Nepal). Other key strategic projects are under development.

The new website is designed to be simple to navigate. It is automatically adaptive to all mobile platforms (tablets, smartphones, phlabets). We encourage you to sign up on the website to receive quarterly newsletters, with the first one to be published in September 2015.

As you navigate the website, please keep in mind that it will continue to evolve to support the needs of our work and communities, as well as reflect AO Alliance’s spirit and core values.
