PTVN Days: International Women’s Day with BABY! IFF

Author: Marybeth Cicirello

In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8th, a round table discussion will take place in Uganda. The U.S. Mission’s inaugural “Social Media Meet-Up” will bring together relevant minds to discuss effective communications pertaining to women’s health and educational issues, as well as a short discussion on female genital mutilation and its impact on women and communities.

Marvin Nyansio, Program Manager of BABY! Int’l Film Festival Uganda, will participate alongside the Inter-Parliamentary Union’s Civil Society Organizations (CSO), including White Ribbon Alliance, World Vision, and CARE, in discussions centered around maternal health and education.

We are excited to be part of this prestigious gathering and reminded of our special interview with Mary Koroma, a grassroots nurse-midwife from Sierra Leone, West Africa who is successfully combating the highest maternal mortality rate in the world and in charge of the Apac Hospital maternity ward. We are also excited for our featured organization this month, White Ribbon Alliance, which will be working with policy makers and local leaders to demonstrate the power of improving maternal health on all levels.

PTVN is a leading voice in promoting community, education and current health information around the globe. We focus on positive actions taken by parents every day in their commitments to raising healthy children and tomorrow’s leaders. BABY! Int’l Film Festival travels to world communities with tailored features on pregnancy, birth, babies, health and parenting.

About MB

Of all the choices I've made in life, the one that has had a lasting wonderment about it has been to toss out any emphasis on living in a material world. Dropping out of the chattel race in America opens up the extraordinary. Rock on, fellow drop outs. Oh, and motherhood is the greatest journey ever! heartyup@gmail.com
