I have a passion for maternal and child health. I believe that for countries to offer safe motherhood and protected childhoods, health should be a right and not a privilege.
Policy should allow for free and equal access to health and with that free contraceptives to reduce maternal death by almost 1/3.

I am doing and online course with Geneva Foundation for Medical Research (GFMER), in collaboration with WHO. One of the assignments I have to do is prepare a paper on Maternal mortality, which should be a scientific paper touching on these issues in Kenya. I would really love to review your work and use if as reference.
I also might be in Kenya on Saturday, and I would love to meet you and discuss further issues with you. I am a member of PHM Kenya, and it would be great for me to introduce you to the rest of the group, and from there, we can see what other things or projects we can do together.
I will send you my contacts. I am looking forward to meeting you soon.
That was a fast response. We can definitely do something. I am currently doing sexual and reproductive health research course, and some of the issues arising from the research can guide us on areas that require interventions. Some of the are Cervical cancer awareness and addressing Obstetric Fistula.
I was looking at your wall, and just felt that it's inline with my passion, especially for advocacy for sexual and reproductive health rights, especially for youth. I don't know if you have anything in mind that we could around this particular issue in our country.
