Hosted by Stephen Lewis Foundation (SLF). Here is the link to the panel discussion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Y8J5pu8i8g
This hour-long discussion was moderated by SLF board member, educator, and registered nurse Josephine Etowa, and featured Canadian nurse and epidemiologist Nancy Edwards, as well as midwife and community healthcare worker Khetsiwe Dlahmini from Eswatini (formerly Swaziland). The discussion focused on the importance of local advocates for female health, traditional birth attendants, and community-led health solutions for women and their communities across Africa.
