Regional Conference of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in East, Central & Southern Africa
ECSAOGS 2014 Conference
As Partners in improving health care, we bring to your notice the above event. The Association of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Uganda (AOGU) are proud to host the regional East, Central and Southern (ECSAOGS) conference slated for October 27th-28th 2014 at Hotel Africana. We are a professional body (not for profit) mandated in part to champion Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) in the region.
Our mission is to provide good leadership for SRHR in prevention management and rehabilitation of sexual ill health. This conference will draw about 300 professionals and more members of the public from the ECSAOGS member countries and beyond. This year the theme is: Enhancing SRHR in the Post 2015 Agenda
We as a region still battle large numbers of women dying during childbirth from excessive bleeding, abortion related complications, life threatening infections during childbirth and unacceptable numbers of newborn deaths. For those who escape death at childbirth many live on with serious disabilities including fistulae and nerve damage. Our total fertility rate is still one of the highest in the world reflecting the suboptimal provision of family planning which could have otherwise reduced on preventable deaths during childbirth.
Presentations at the conference will cover the following sub-themes:
- Adolescent reproductive Health
- Maternal and newborn deaths.
- Quality improvement strategies
- Role of men in reproductive health
- Abortion and sexual rights
- Gender Based Violence.
- Gynaecology cancers and many others
