Team Hamlin at Women Deliver conference
The Women Deliver 2023 Conference took place in Kigali, Rwanda, from 17-20 July, and we were delighted Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia’s CEO Tesfaye Mamo and Dean of Midwifery Konjit Kassahun were there championing women’s maternal health rights.
With over 6,000 attendees representing organisations from across the globe, Women Deliver is one of the biggest conferences in the world for gender equality and the health and rights of girls and women.
Speakers at this year’s conference included Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, President of the Republic of Rwanda His Excellency Paul Kagame, Executive Director of UNFPA Natalia Kanem, Her Royal Highness Mabel van Oranje of the Netherlands and many other leading voices from around the globe.
Tesfaye and Konjit met with leaders of organisations supporting women’s health from around the world to raise awareness of fistula and our life changing work to end avoidable childbirth injury in Ethiopia.
Advocacy is vital to Hamlin’s work to end avoidable childbirth injuries in Ethiopia and the conference’s insightful and inspiring conversations on how we can work together to achieve health and rights of girls and women represent another step in the journey towards ending fistula.
