about this event

Join the Obstetrics & Gynaecology Section for an evening to address a range of women's health issues across the globe.

Audience participation will be encouraged to allow discussion and sharing of personal experience.

Osteoporosis is a global problem, with malnutrition associated with the absence of menstruation. Abscence of periods can be an enormous predisposing factor to this debilitating disease. We'll be joined by National Osteoporosis Society as they give an update on how osteoporosis can affect women's health. 

covered topics include:

  • Global traditional treatments in womens health 
  • Complementary therapies - how is yoga helpful?
  • Health issues in middle eastern women 
  • Global health issues for mothers and their babies 
  • The variations in perinatal mortality across the globe 
  • Updates in fistula care
