VISION: PRONTO envisions birth as a safe and respectful experience for all mothers, babies, and healthcare providers.
MISSION: We aim to optimize care during birth. We develop and implement innovative training strategies for health care providers that act as a catalyst for individual, team, and system change.
We accomplish our mission by…
●Providing low-cost, highly realistic obstetric and neonatal emergency simulation training for interprofessional teams in resource-limited settings around the world.
●Promoting kind, dignified, and culturally responsive care of women and babies through interactive training modules that facilitate group discussion and self-discovery.
●Assisting local teams in the diagnosis of system barriers and in identifying achievable strategies to improve patient safety and birth outcomes.
●Contributing expertise to the field of low-resource simulation and facilitated debriefing.
●Participating in implementation research to refine training modules that improve outcomes for mothers, babies and healthcare providers.
COMPANY OVERVIEW: PRONTO was born in response to the WHO Millennium Development Goals (MDG) 4 and 5 and a call from the Mexican government to develop a program that focuses on improving the quality of care for women and neonates during obstetric emergencies. PRONTO International is an obstetric and neonatal emergency training program that leads inter-professional medical care teams through a series of skills stations, team-building activities, and low-tech, high-fidelity simulations. Participants gain the knowledge and skills necessary for the immediate diagnosis, treatment and stabilization of obstetric emergencies in resource-limited settings through innovative training modules.
