What are we waiting for?
In September 2000, the 189 members of the United Nations came together in New York to adopt the United Nations Millennium Declaration, committing to a new global partnership to reduce extreme poverty and setting out a series of time-bound targets - with a deadline of 2015. Today less than 5 years are left to reach the targets. Some 20 Flemish organizations, among which ICRH Belgium, have joined forces to launch a campaign to draw the attention of policy makers and the public to the Millennium Goals and to insist on their realization.

In April 2001 a small girls' football and development programme began in Kilifi district, coastal Kenya. Eight years later there are 3,000 girls playing football, accessing reproductive health information and social support in the Moving the Goalposts (MTG) project.

Na 2 succesvolle boeken over haar ervaringen in de verloskunde en gynaecologie in België, heeft Prof. Dr. Marleen Temmerman (oprichtster van ICRH) haar ervaringen als gynaecologe in Afrika neergeschreven. Dit verhaal keert 25 jaar terug in de tijd naar de beginperiode van Marleen haar eerste HIV onderzoeksproject op de Pumwani materniteit te Nairobi. Het boek bundelt aangrijpende verhalen die oproepen tot een betere verstandhouding en verbetering van de levensomstandigheden van Afrikaanse vrouwen en mannen.

After writing two successful books about women encountered in her obstetrical / gynaecological practice in Belgium, Prof. Marleen Temmerman (founder of ICRH) wrote down her experiences as a gynaecologist in Africa. This story dates back 25 years, when she started her first HIV research project in Pumwani Maternity, Nairobi. The book bundles a few of the moving stories that call for better understanding and change in the condition of women (and men) in Africa. Released in Dutch in the beginning of May 2009, the book 'Mama Daktari' is due for translation in English later this year.
