We were shocked to hear one of the dutch doctors international health and tropical medicine passed away during his work in Sierra Leone last week. Our condolences go out to his family and friends.
Congratulations to Steffie Hemelaar who won the price for ‘best presentation for registrars’ about her work as tropical doctor and PhD on maternal morbidity in Namibia.
At the Gynaecongres from the dutch society for obs&gyn (NVOG) in November several members of the ISM&RH were involved in presenting their work.
The ISM&RH is active in supervising PhD’s in LMIC. We can congratulate a new group of Doctors after completing their defense succesfully. Read the PhD’s and more about the Safe Motherhood series
