Health Leadership International

HLI Seattle is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization

Health Leadership International partners with health ministries, hospitals, universities, NGO's and women's organizations to improve the well-being of vulnerable populations. The vision, initiative and implementation of each project are inspired by the communities with whom we work.

Health Leadership International has developed a step-by-step Action Template for educational project planning and development. The process begins when local health leaders identify healthcare education or training needs and objectives; these leaders then enlist the participation of Health Leadership International.

Dr Souamoua from Khamkerd District

Meet one of the ultrasound trainees, Dr Souamoua Yasend, from Khamkerd District in Khammouane Province (borders Vietnam). After high school she moved to Hanoi for a year to learn Vietnamese and stayed for another six to become an MD. She has been back in Laos for 3+ years and is very happy to be leaning more about ultrasound.
Our classroom and sunset this evening across the Mekong.

We started our first day of ultrasound training in Khammouane Province in central Laos. We have 22 trainees from 11 Districts - some of them are experienced in ultrasound and some are not. All but four are women, which is unusual for our ultrasound courses which usually split 50-50.
One pic shows our senior faculty member, Dr Molina, being interviewed by the Vientiane Times. Others show the trainees being oriented to the machines that will be going to their Districts - a total of 10. You will see the USA flag on the ultrasounds - this reflects that this gift is made possible trough HLI's grant from the Department of State.

Week 2:  The students spent time learning about bone fractures and emergency assessment.  They participated in hands-on triage exercises and practiced splinting fractures.
