WHY DO WOMEN DIE? MATERNAL MORTALITY FROM NORTHERN UGANDA TO CHARLOTTESVILLE
Most deaths from childbirth are preventable. Yet a woman somewhere around the world dies from childbirth every minute. The solutions that are currently in place are proving to be ineffective on a global scale.
Join us as we unpack this global problem.
Why women of color are dying at alarming rates
The intersection of race, culture, and maternal health
The history of aid and humanitarian response
How community-based interventions save women’s lives
Please join us 5-7PM at CGH on the UVA corner to talk about research opportunities associated with the Center for Global Health University Scholar Award. Marcel Durieux, MD, Department of Anesthesiology, University of Virginia, will discuss multiple research opportunities
The Center for Global Health supports interdisciplinary approaches to global health and we welcome scholar proposals for work conducted at global partner sites in Rwanda, Guatemala, South Africa and elsewhere.
