Malcolm Hewitt is the Chairman of Hamlin Fistula UK, a charity exclusively supporting the Addis Ababa Fistula hospital in Ethiopia. He will chart the development of the hospital from its inception to the present where five outreach hospitals have been built and a Midwifery School opened a few years ago. It is leading the fight about changing how to treat the affliction of fistulae, and how to prevent them happening in the first place. This is a good news story which is making a real difference to the lives of many women in Ethiopia.

The lecture is free to attend but capacity at the venue is limited, so please reserve your place soon to avoid disappointment.
The Anglo-Ethiopian Society is affiliated to the University of London’s Centre of African Studies (CAS) and all of our events at SOAS are co-hosted with CAS.
