THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE WILL VISIT THE ROYAL COLLEGE
OF OBSTETRICIANS AND GYNAECOLOGISTS 

London

Tuesday 27th February, 2018

The Duchess of Cambridge will visit the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) on Tuesday 27th February. Her Royal Highness will learn more about the College’s global health programmes to reduce maternal and newborn mortality worldwide, and will attend a roundtable discussion on tackling the stigma around women’s health.

The RCOG works to improve healthcare for women everywhere, by setting standards for clinical practice, providing doctors with training and lifelong learning, and advocating for women’s healthcare worldwide. Founded in 1929, the College now has over 16,000 members worldwide, and works with a range of partners both in the UK and globally to encourage the study of obstetrics and gynaecology and advance its science and practice.

The Duchess will firstly hear about the RCOG’s education and training programmes for doctors wishing to specialise in this field, and how practical examinations fit into the training process. Her Royal Highness will then see how the College’s workshops and continued training support trainee doctors to develop safe surgical techniques and essential clinical skills in obstetrics and gynaecology.

The Duchess will then learn more about the work carried out by the RCOG’s Centre for Women’s Global Health, which supports communities across the world with women’s maternal and gynaecological health, and aims to reduce maternal and newborn fatalities. Her Royal Highness will in particular hear about the Leading Safe Choices programme, which operates in South Africa and Tanzania.

Finally, The Duchess will attend a roundtable discussion focussed on exploring how the stigma which surrounds women’s health, and in particular maternal mental health, can be challenged.
