Women Deliver

By on May 20, 2016   Dear Colleagues,

While waiting for the World Humanitarian Summit (Istanbul), the 69th World Health Assembly (Geneva) & the G7 summit (Japan), the ‘Women Deliver’ conference in Copenhagen obviously got most of the attention this week from the global health community. This IHP newsletter will do the same, including with a Featured article by Shakira Choonara, one of the globetrotting EV alumni.  So without much further ado, let’s get to it! 

(PS: But before doing that, I just want to flag the ongoing MSF Scientific Days (20-21 May) – everything will be livestreamed, from London. As usual, MSF will showcase research and innovation from its humanitarian operations around the world. The event is nicely timed this year, just before the World Humanitarian Summit kicks off J ; see also a just published Lancet Global Health blog by Sarah Venis for some more  background on the MSF scientific days).

Enjoy your reading.
