7:00pm, Room B102 Brunei Gallery, SOAS, Russell Square, London WC1H 0XG - Public lecture (all welcome)
Malcolm Hewitt is the Chairman of Hamlin Fistula UK, a charity exclusively supporting the Addis Ababa Fistula hospital in Ethiopia. He will chart the development of the hospital from its inception to the present where five outreach hospitals have been built and a Midwifery School opened a few years ago. It is leading the fight about changing how to treat the affliction of fistulae, and how to prevent them happening in the first place. This is a good news story which is making a real difference to the lives of many women in Ethiopia.
