Quote from our Chair
“I was honoured to be asked to present at the FIGO World Congress and to have the opportunity to share our evidence base on the Integrated Approach to improving maternal health compiled over the previous 14 years of working in maternal health in Africa. It is really important that maternal health organisations and health providers attempt to simultaneously address each of the issues women face accessing safe and appropriate childbirth.” Dr Adrian Brown, Chair.
