Knowing what works in terms of reducing maternal mortality is complicated by a huge diversity of country contexts and of determinants of maternal health. At this conference we aim to show that despite this complexity, with a few strategic medical choices, it can be achieved – albeit slowly and very deliberately.
Carefully developed in partnership with the Obstetrics & Gynaecology Department, University of the Witwatersrand, the Medical Obstetrics conference returns to Africa Health for the 2nd edition with exciting content. Delegates can expect to hear from senior level experts, local and international, who will provide strategies for addressing common (and less common but equally dangerous) maternal conditions, the issue of mortality in low-resource settings, medico-legal challenges in obstetrics and the trending #blackmamasmatter.
Over two days, delegates will be privy to extensive lectures conducted by a diverse and expert faculty which will provide answers to the most difficult questions in the issue of maternal mortality in Africa.
