Pathfinder International Hosts Key Panels at World Congress of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO)

Next week, Pathfinder International will join gynecologists, obstetricians, and reproductive health experts from around the world at the XX World Congress of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) in Rome. This tri-annual gathering brings together experts to analyze and discuss new medical techniques and practices to improve reproductive health in the developed and developing world.

Pathfinder is proud to be part of such an esteemed gathering of health professionals, and looks forward to hosting three panel discussions, moderated by our leading reproductive health advisors, Graciela Salvador-Davila, Cathy Solter, and Carlos Laudari. The panels will focus on scaling up cervical cancer prevention, expanding postabortion care, and integrating services for gender-based violence, contraception, and HIV. In addition, key staff from our field offices will present perspectives from Ethiopia, Mozambique, Brazil, Nigeria, and India both on the panels above, and additional panels on reducing maternal mortality with the use of the non-pneumatic anti-shock garment, the launch of the Training Resource Package for Family Planning, and our partnership with UCSF to address postpartum hemorrhage.

Outside of the conference, Pathfinder will participate in a session held by Ipas, Safe Abortion Care and Advocacy: A Global Technical Exchange, on Sunday October 7 from 11:00 AM-4:00 PM at Sheraton Golf Parco de Medici Hotel.

Pathfinder looks forward to sharing our knowledge of what we have learned works in improving sexual and reproductive health around the world. For more information about our presenters, panels, or participation, please feel free to contact us.
