Held every three years, the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) World Congress remains the single largest gathering on maternal and infant health anywhere in the world. And MCSP wouldn’t miss it!
We joined 11,000 passionate scientists, researchers, clinicians and policymakers in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for an inspiring week of presentations and hands-on learning. We listened to world-renowned speakers and discussed our own lessons on how best to improve conditions for the world’s women and children.
From landscapes as divergent as Egypt and Guatemala, MCSP staff shared our on-the-ground knowledge from the world’s most challenging regions for health. Learn more about how we’re training community health workers, meeting the unique needs of adolescents, preventing postpartum hemorrhage during home births, and more – all with the aim of preventing needless deaths.
