Photo exhibition in Maputo

In June, a permanent photo exhibition about women’s rights and positive birth experiences opened in the central hospital of Maputo, Mozambique. The project was set up by PhD student Anna Galle and visual anthropologist Tina Kruger, with support of the Global Minds Fund. 

To the exposition highlights the strength of women and their right  to a respectful birth experience. Stories of women going through pregnancy and their families are captured with beautiful pictures and combined with  explanations of current practices that were adopted in the central hospital to guarantee those women’s rights. 

Tina & Anna hope the exposition can be an inspiration for all health providers to strive for a respectful birth experience for all women and their families and opens up a bit the doors of the delivery ward for all women and their families to make them more confident before having to go in.
