MWIA leadership brings in new vigour to stand firmly against sexual and domestic violence

"Time for action is now! I will stand up strongly along with MWIA to fight persistently against violence"... I was so impressed to hear these strong words coming firmly and clearly from the new MWIA President, Professor Kyung Ah Park from Korea Medical Women Association who is officially inaugurated as 30th President of the Medical Women International Association (MWIA) today. As we closed the congress today, it became very clear to me that MWIA stands boldly to defend matters around reproductive health and reproductive health rights that include increased access to reproductive health services to all women and girls. The conference was dominated with papers on reproductive health, maternal and child health; and also seven resolutions were deliberated around reproductive health services and rights. Violence against women and girls were condemned and clearly made as not accepted.

This was an exciting meeting, it is an opportunity that female medics in the globe should not plan to miss- I was also impressed to see how medical science could positively merge politics and arts – presentations of which were made by senior medical doctors and drew lots of interest. Next MWIA is in Vienna, Austria... I cannot wait to go Vienna... it will be on 28th - 31st July 2016.
