Giving birth to a newborn baby should be a time of joy; yet for millions women in developing countries, a lack of basic knowledge about issues in maternal and child health means it is one of the most life-threatening things they can do. Dr Natalie Greenwold will talk about the power of film in sharing life-saving knowledge, and how MAF’s films are being used to train health workers and educate community women in some of the hardest to reach areas of the world.
Dr Natalie Greenwold is a Clinical Assistant at University College Hospital London and Co-Founder of health education charity, Medical Aid Films (MAF).
