BMA Health and Reproductive Rights Conference 2015

Posted on by
The BMA is hosting a FREE one-day conference for medical students and medical ethics tutors on health and reproductive rights on 14th December 2015
The conference is designed to emphasise the vital importance of human rights in the delivery of high-quality patient-centered care, both in reproductive medicine and in health care more broadly.
Following some scene-setting speeches, the day is designed to introduce medical students to the key human rights instruments in health care. The focus of the day will be on developing seminars on health and human rights that students can replicate in their own medical schools – to cascade this vital work to their friends and colleagues.
The conference will draw upon educational resources compiled by FIGO, the International Federation of Gynaecology and Obstetrics – see

Speakers will include:

· Sir Sabaratnam Arulkumaran, past president of FIGO and BMA
· Professor Lesley Regan, vice president of Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, head of obstetrics and gynaecology, Imperial College London
