About the AO Alliance

The AO Alliance is a nonprofit, development organization dedicated to strengthening care of the injured in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Our mission is to reduce human suffering, disability, and poverty by implementing programs that enhance local fracture-care capacity for sustainable impact.

We are a catalyst in knowledge development and transfer for trauma and orthopedic care in 24 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and 8 countries in Asia.

We do this by:

  • Improving standards of care through fracture management education;
  • Recruiting talented individuals to join the AO Alliance network of 350 of healthcare workers; and
  • Enabling trained healthcare workers to apply their newly acquired knowledge, attitudes, and skills within their local treatment environments.
