Carefully developed in partnership with the Obstetrics & Gynaecology Department, University of the Witwatersrand, the Medical Obstetrics conference returns to Africa Health for the 3red edition with an all-new and exciting programme!

Over the two days, delegates can expect to hear from senior experts, local and international, who will share novel insight as they address the conference theme of “getting back to basics for enhanced obstetric care and effective management of the pregnant patient”.

Whilst gaining CPD, delegates will take away practical knowledge concerning pre hospital care provision, effective management of obstetric emergencies, and the top tips and techniques to overcome the most challenging and complex obstetric medicine cases.
