Radiation safety is a critical component in pediatric imaging. In Africa, radiation-safety is championed by the AFROSAFE campaign under the umbrella of the African Society of Radiology (ASR). AFROSAFE was launched on 17<sup>th</sup> February, 2015 during the 8<sup>th</sup> biennial Pan African Congress of Radiology and Imaging (PACORI) which was held in Nairobi, Kenya. The mission of AFROSAFE is to ensure favorable benefit-risk ratio in the use of ionizing radiation in medicine through encouraging adherence to safety standards and guidelines as per the “Bonn Call for Action”. Through this Campaign, all the radiation health workers of Africa have agreed to unite with the common goal of identifying and addressing issues arising from radiation protection in medicine. This is an educational poster that outlines the signifcant Milestones AFROSAFE has achieved one year later, the pertinent issues, challenges and success. Read More

Five years ago the leaders of the world’s regional pediatric imaging societies launched the World Federation of Pediatric Imaging (WFPI), a pediatric imaging body with global overview. According to its mission statement "WFPI provides an international platform for pediatric radiology organizations united to address the challenges in global pediatric imaging training and the delivery of services". To guide WFPI's outreach endeavors as well as of other organizations interested in improving pediatric radiology services worldwide a project to better define the needs and gaps of pediatric radiologists and training centers worldwide was undertaken. The project aims to: -Establish the number of Pediatric Radiologists (as regionally defined) per country/region around the world -Outline the training pediatric radiologists receive and availability of training centers -Highlight major disparities and gaps in availability of pediatric radiologists and pediatric imaging training -Based on this information create a roadmap for WFPI’s global efforts.
