CAM Global to host symposium on reproductive health and rights in October
CAM’s first symposium on global health will kick off the 2018 annual conference in October. The symposium, Exploring Best Practices in Global Reproductive Health and Rights, will use the work of midwives as a touchstone for larger conversations on the themes of family planning, sexual health and rights, abortion, gender transformation and global Indigenous health.
CAM Global Director, Emmanuelle Hébert explains:
“It is an opportunity for Canadian and international stakeholders to have an open and in-depth conversation around ensuring increased delivery of reproductive health and rights.”
CAM and its global partners, midwives, organizations, government officials, funders, and others with an interest in global reproductive health and rights will explore best practices and engage in a dynamic conversation about the roles midwives, other health care professionals, and the development community can play in improving sexual and reproductive health and rights.
In addition to providing a forum for discussion on global sexual and reproductive health and rights, CAM will share testimonials on the impacts of midwives’ work in communities worldwide.
