Call for applications – Mama & Family Project e-internship!

As part of our Covid-19 response, SOGH decided to not perform any field work this summer. No interns from Uganda or any other country will meet the local communities we work with. In fact, their and your health are a priority for us. However, the evaluation of the Mama & Family project, a project organized and managed by SOGH and our Ugandan partner UDHA (Uganda Development and Health Associates).  still needs to go ahead. Therefore, join us on our first e-internship!

Webinar: Periods in Pandemics: menstrual health activism during the COVID-19 crisis

Date: 28th May 2020
Time:  12:00 – 13:30 CEST
Place: Zoom (we will send out a link to your email)

How are you supposed to change your pads or wash your hands if you don’t have access to a toilet and clean water? How are you supposed to wear a tampon or a facemask if you cannot afford it? Menstrual health and COVID-19 have more things in common than you think. They both disproportionately affect the most vulnerable people, they both hinder women and girls from reaching their full potential. As with many things in our lives, COVID-19 is impacting menstruators and those who work towards gender equality through good menstrual health. Do you want to know more?

We are very proud to invite you to an inspiring seminar with four outstanding speakers from different parts of the world. Join us and meet Amina, Rebecka, Shyaka and Roisa for an insightful discussion around periods in pandemics and their work during these times. You can’t miss it!

Parasites in Paradise: Facing Down the Scourge of Malaria in Pregnancy

WHEN: 12th of May, 4PM CEST

We are proud to invite you to Swedish Organization for Global Health’s inspirational webinar with our guest speaker and global leader in the field, Dr Raquel González from Barcelona Institute of Global Health (ISGlobal).
We are excited to have her present an introduction and overview in the field “Parasites in Paradise: Facing Down the Scourge of Malaria in Pregnancy”. This will outline the biological basis for malaria in pregnancy, current recommendations to prevent and treat malaria in pregnancy, and challenges ahead, including COVID-19, for the 125 million pregnant women who are at risk of malaria infection each year.
 

We at Swedish Organization for Global Health (SOGH) are a Stockholm-based non-profit and non-governmental organisation working on projects locally in Sweden and in Uganda. We currently have a maternal health project set up in rural Uganda focusing on providing maternal support. As an action for World Malaria Day we want to raise awareness to a lesser known malaria area focusing on malaria in pregnancy.

We feel very lucky and excited to hear Dr González speak and hope you will join us!

We will send out the Zoom link via email to all who sign up via this form –  https://forms.gle/K7GkgLCUX3D1dnyt8
