Daniel Quesada, Community Outreach Officer

In February, we led a 10-day delegation of Canadian healthcare professionals to Guatemala to visit Guatemalan midwives, doctors, and health-promoters. This month, the traditional Indigenous Guatemalan midwives and doctors will come to Canada and meet us! This North-South exchange is thanks to our Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health (MNCH) project with support from Global Affairs Canada. Throughout the month of March, we'll be travelling across Ontario with this delegation of traditional, Indigenous Guatemalan midwives and doctors, visiting hospitals, clinics, and venues. 

 There are several public events, we invite you to join us at: 

TORONTO, ONTARIO — Sally Horsfall Eaton Centre for Studies in Community Health (SHE) room 653 @ 4:30PM-6:00PM — 99 Gerard Street.
