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.
