The Mozambican Association of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (AMOG, Associação Moçambicana de Obstetras e Ginecologistas) was created in July 2006, and currently has 61 members.
As one of the partners in LOGIC, AMOG has been working to strengthen its organisational capacity. Among other things, a five-year strategic plan for the period 2011-2016 was developed, encompassing AMOG’s mission, vision, values and strategic priorities. AMOG is also increasingly expanding its network of partners it collaborates with.
Despite being a relatively young and small association, AMOG decided to host the 9th International Scientific Conference of the Eastern, Central and Southern Africa Association of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (ECSAOG) in October 2011.
This proved to be a big challenge in terms of logistical preparations and fundraising. The meeting was held successfully and proved to be an important milestone for the organisation. Dr Cassimo, Treasurer of AMOG and FIGO-LOGIC program director, says: 'Going through a huge challenge such as to host the ECSAOG conference in Maputo strengthens the internal and external collaboration, and provides an exceptional visibility opportunity for the organisation.' AMOG managed to present itself as a strategic partner in maternal and newborn health whilst doing the fundraising for this event, and considerably increased its network and profile.
