The panel discussion will be moderated by NTV’s Josephine Karungi, and held at Makerere University. We are honored to have the Permanent Secretary to the Ministry of Health, Dr. Diana Atwine as our Keynote Speaker. We will be highlighting the role of competent surgery and its impact in reducing maternal deaths. In attendance there will be press, key government officials and leaders in health.

We will also take the opportunity to re-introduce the Essential Training in Operative Obstetrics program at Makerere University, which will officially re-launch in December. Stakeholders at Makerere University, Mbarara University of Science and Technology, Busitema University and Drexel University have developed a new curriculum which is innovative and more suitable for the dynamic young learners of today.
