Location: RCOG
Programme: Africa Day 2019.pdf

The African continent remains to have some of the highest indicators for maternal death, accounting for two thirds of all maternal deaths per year worldwide. Adequate access to reproductive health services - such as family planning, skilled attendance at birth and emergency obstetric and neonatal care are all factors that will help reduce this figure significantly.

The RCOG not only retains some of the most renowned experts within these fields, but is also the lead women’s health institution to set standards for clinical practice and advocate for women’s health worldwide.

Join us on 27 September to catalyse a dialogue for regional collaboration. Africa Day will bring together global health stakeholders and provide a platform for regionally relevant women’s health concerns to be addressed. Lecture and workshop topics will include gender-based violence, safe abortion, universal health coverage, a Trainees Forum, quality improvement, etc.
