Foundation for International Urogynecological Assistance (FIUGA) and Caldera Medical today announced their partnership to support urogynecological education, research and care around the world to reduce the suffering of women with Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) and Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP).
“Millions of women in poverty-stricken countries are incapacitated by incontinence and/or prolapse and are not receiving the care they need,” stated Bryon Merade, Chairman and CEO, Caldera Medical, adding, “teaming up with FIUGA to eliminate the suffering of women with SUI and POP will enable us to fulfill our mission of improving the quality of life for women. I encourage people to show their support of FIUGA by offering a donation, https://www.statusplus.net/fiuga/donate/.”
“Caldera Medical is a great partner and this partnership reflects our desire to collaborate with companies that share our vision of a world where all women are free from pelvic floor problems. This partnership underscores our commitment to promote research, education and care of urogynecology conditions,” said Dr. Peter Sand, President, FIUGA.
FIUGA will coordinate humanitarian trips for surgeons and arrange logistics, including local transportation, accommodation, customs enforcement and safety. Caldera Medical will sponsor travel and housing expenses of FIUGA’s faculty traveling on humanitarian trips. Caldera Medical aims to promote FIUGA’s goal to generate more positive support for the cause. In addition, Caldera Medical will donate surgical implants and provide reusable introducers during humanitarian trips.
