Home > Soapbox Updates > EVENT: Maternal & Newborn Health: More than a Medical Issue

To celebrate International Day of the Midwife, The Soapbox Collaborative will host an event ‘Powered by PechaKucha’. The event will explore the social and cultural   barriers women face accessing safe clean care at birth in some of the most resource poor settings in the world. The evening will feature speakers from WaterAid, NHS Grampian, the University of Aberdeen, and more. Topics will highlight the work being done internationally to prioritise quality maternal health services that respond to local needs and promote universal equity.

The format for the evening is creative and simple: PechaKucha means ‘chit chat’ in Japanese and refers to a format whereby presenters have 20 images and only 20 seconds to talk about each image making short, fast moving presentations and    ensuring an entertaining evening!

The event will be held at the Belmont Filmhouse on Thursday 4th May, 18.30.

Tickets can be purchased for £5 at the Belmont Filmhouse website or are available on the door.
