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.

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.
