The Ethiopian Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists

2008: The Ethiopian Society of obstetricians and gynecologists.
The International Partnership for Reproductive Health (IPRH) is a new non-profit organization with a focus on cervical cancer screening.
A meeting is arranged at the Ghion Hotel in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Dr. Ransom presents a discussion on cervical cancer screening.
Medical professionals, including the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department faculty of Addis Ababa University, members of the Ethiopian Society of  Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ESOG) are in attendance. Significant concerns are expressed by conference participants.
1) How to motivate women to actively seek screening and preventative care
2) the need to develop a national tumor registry
3) how to alleviate stress imposed on the healthcare system by the attrition of physicians in the public sector.
We thank Dr. Gaym Asheber, President of ESOG, for his support for the mission of IPRH.
