Twenty five years ago the International Centre of Reproductive Health (ICRH) was founded by Professor Marleen Temmerman, as a response to the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo in 1994. It was established first at Ghent University, but today ICRH has three sister organisations in Belgium, Kenya and Mozambique with strong collaborations with other partners worldwide. A quarter of a century later, this had to be celebrated, so in November there were events planned in Mombasa, Kenya and Ghent, Belgium.

Unsafe abortion is a major cause of maternal mortality in Mozambique, and in 2014 the country liberalised its law in relation to abortion, significantly increasing the conditions under which it is legal to obtain a safe abortion.

On November 20-21, ICRH’s dr. Katrina Perehudoff attended the first Global Essential Medicines (GEM) meeting organised by Prof. Nav Persaud at the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto.

On 21 November 2019, during an official visit of the province of East Flanders to the Chinese Hebei province, an agreement was signed establishing a joint laboratory for global health between Ghent University (Belgium) and Hebei Medical University (China).

This autumn ICRH celebrated its 25th birthday
