My colleague and fellow author Dr. Nassim Assefi is in Kabul this month evaluating a midwifery program she consulted on 4 years ago. She writes on Twitter (@nassefi): "May 5 is International Midwifery Day. Plan to hug my favorite Afghan midwives at work tomorrow.Moved by their courage and impact.Progress in Afghan health sector amazing! So proud of my Afgh colleagues at 5th Midwifery Congress. Why doesn't media cover this stuff?"
She won't be able to join the call but I offered to pass on this news, and her question.
