In 2015, we saw more than 300 patients: almost all (97%) were female, more than half (53%) between 20 and 34 years old, and nearly 60% were there for prenatal exams.
Our entire expenses for these services in 2015 totaled less than U$3000. So, for less than U$10 per patient, which includes all salaries and follow-up, over 300 impoverished people received a free ultrasound exam that they would not have been able to have otherwise. Amazing, right?
In the first seven months of 2016, we have already seen more than 400 patients; that is already a 145% increase since 2015. Doctors within a 50 mile radius are sending patients - we are their patients' only option if they do not have the time or money to go to Rivas, the closest city, and wait. Out of the 431 patients who have been seen so far, almost all (94%) were female and more than 40% were pregnant. This has cost MOG just over U$2600, which breaks down to U$6 per patient!
