A new University of Liverpool research unit has opened in Liverpool Women’s Hospital.
The Sanyu Unit for International Maternal and Child Health, named in honour of Edith Sanyu who died from obstructed labour in Uganda last year, will promote improvements in international maternal and child health in low resource settings through high impact inter-disciplinary research.
Four university academics have come together to form the unit: Professor Andrew Weeks, Professor Louise Ackers, Professor Atif Rahman and Dr Melissa Gladstone. Their work is based mainly in Uganda, Malawi and Pakistan and revolves around knowledge transfer between rich and poor settings and the development of locally appropriate technologies and techniques..
If you would like further information on the Unit, contact Unit Manager, Dr Carol Porter.
On Thursday 8 March, 10am-4pm the Liverpool Women’s Hospital will celebrate International Women’s Day with a day of free events, including a performance by The Beatelles, the world’s only all-female Beatles tribute band and Zumba and hoola hoop taster sessions. There will also be an international food tasting session and a chance to see the services offered by the Trust. The event will be in the main reception area of the hospital.
