Buy One, Gift One Program

Making a difference

Well trained healthcare personnel can make the difference between life and death.

 But not all health care professionals have access to quality training and tools that allow for critical hands-on practice.  That’s how Buy One, Gift One can help.

What is the Buy One Gift One Program?

Buy One, Gift one, or BOGO, is a joint program by Laerdal Global Health and Laerdal Medical that facilitates distribution of birthing simulators in places where they're needed most. That’s how Buy One, Gift One can help.

For every maternal simulator purchased by Laerdal Medical customers for use in a high-income country, a MamaBirthie CS  or MamaNatalie is donated to a selected partnership program in a low-income country.

These simulators are being distributed to partners, together with educational materials, to enable healthcare providers with training opportunities like the Helping Mothers Survive Program and SimBegin, to manage the leading causes of maternal and neonatal mortality. They’re used by healthcare providers to gain hands-on experience to manage obstetric emergencies, practice delivery techniques, and improve their competence and confidence.

Laerdal Medical customers provide the donations and Laerdal Global Health strategically allocates the simulators to partner programs with high-impact potential.

The impact

7000 Birthing simulators distributed

“There are several ways our training has improved because of the Buy One, Gift One donated simulators. The training was very realistic. Trainees felt that they were working on real patients and that this wasn’t just a mannequin, but a real person."
